The main problem are the seeds
if a tulip produce seeds
they consume a giant amount of energy
so the new bulb (the old one dies) is not flowering size
and will normally not flower
This is why bulb-growers take out the flower just after colouring
just for saving energy

I am in Normandy
and we have wet summers
here tulips flower every year
with fertiliser and taking out the seed-pods

> I'm pretty sure DFW and Houston don't have much in common climate wise. Houston is down on the coast and has rain throughout the year. I would not call it a Mediterranean climate. And hot wet soil and tulips are not a recipe for success.
