Inspired by Arnold's postings of Tulipa photos on the PBS wiki, I added photos and links showing additional Tulipa species. I'm not going to list all the links here, just follow this single link to the PBS wiki Tulipa page: http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… One item to call your attention to, and a question in general. In the photos I posted, I show a patch of Tulipa tarda, "succession interplanted" with Tulipa bakeri 'Lilac Wonder'. I was wondering if others have tried "succession bulb planting" to extend the season of a planted area. Can the bulbs coexist without one overtaking the other? The most successful scheme I've tried is planting Puschkinia libanotica (which Hoog & Dix list as P. scilloides var. libanotica) amongst Crocus chysanthus cultivars. After the crocus have finished, the lovely palest blue flowers of the Puschkinia adorn the patches of still-green crocus foliage. They occupy the same space in the garden, conserving space for ephemeral bulbs. Thoughts?
