Hi, I am hoping someone out there will be able to help me by providing guidance on any tulips resistant to tulipa botrytis.
I am a tulip lover and had about 500 perennials in my garden when it was struck with tulip fire.  That was about 5 years ago. I dug out most of them, still working on the stragglers.  Couldn't help but notice that my one set of species tulips and one set of greigii did not seem affected.  Is this mere coincidence or are some tulips more resistant?
Any botrytis-resistant tulips anyone can recommend for me to try?
I miss my tulips so much. Have many other bulbs but still in mourning for the ones I loved the most.
Any help would be appreicated.
