And in a cool climate like mine (Denmark) I  am forever digging them up when I weed. Often they winter on top of the ground, and then if lying on their sides, send roots down early in spring and eventually right themselves and flower normally. (It  freezes in winter, January and February).

This is because Denmark has the correct climate for tulips and all these cold-climate bulbs, of course.
