Notes for Identification: Species tulip (tulipa fosteriana) is a bulbous perennial with 3 to 6 oblong to broadly ovate, light gray-green leaves, to 12" long, downy above. Care: most tulips require a long winter and thrive in zone 4-6. In zone 7-8 fewer are adaptable and in 9-10 they should be grown as annuals or chilled for the winter. Bulbs must be pre-cooled at 40-45 degrees f for 8 to 10 weeks before planting. Remove faded flowers but don't cut back stems or foliage until they are brown. Tulips need these to create energy for next years blooms. In warmer zones plant in shaded part of the garden.
