Site Map for Tulip Bulbs

"Especially for junior and senior secondary agricultural schools, the International Flower Bulb Centre has painted the broadest possible picture of the world of flower bulbs and bulb flowers for these pupils.

A wide range of subjects can not only provide the basis for a report or project, but can also serve as a source of information to support the various subject areas such as bulb forcing or planting and maintenance." from The International Flower Bulb Centre.


Elegant Tulip Bulbs provides a great deal of information about tulips.


"When you shop for bulbs, you'll see some labeled as "good for naturalizing." This means that they can be counted on to come up year after year, and spread informally throughout your garden. This list of spring- and summer-flowering bulbs

are reliably perennial in habit. Plant bulbs in autumn." from The Old Farmer's Almanac in America.

"Naturalization: The American Flag

The American Flag has 50 stars that represent the 50 states and 13 stripes that represent the original 13 colonies. Before the U.S. became a country, these 13 colonies were separate and Great Britain governed them. To fight the British, the colonies united. The War of Independence was fought in 1783. The U.S. became an independent country as a result, and the 13 colonies became the first 13 states. The colors chosen for the flag signify bravery (red), virtue (white), and justice (blue)."from the Naturalization Almanac: Important Documents: Symbols & Anthems of the United States.

Red and White Tulips with Blue Muscari could be used to create that flag in a flower bed. Other flags or scenes could also be created using mixtures of bulbs.
