Comments: In the Lower South tulips have to be treated as an annual and planted every year because the winter temperatures are too mild to satisfy their dormancy requirements. Purchase tulip bulbs in late autumn and store in a refrigerator in the crisper section for six weeks before planting in late December or early January. Select a sunny location with well drained soil.
