The Q&A Archives: Hiding Tulips..

Question: What can I do to hide the dying tulips. I have heard you can take a rubberband and bend back the stem and let it dye that way. I hate the way it looks while they're dying. Or is there anything I can plant to come up next year right after the tulips to cover the dying foliage. Thanks, Wayne.,

Answer: Folding the foliage is not very good for the plant because it needs its foliage to help replenish the bulb so it can bloom next year. Planting lareger transplants of annuals or early emerging perennials such as daylilies in front of the tulips can help distract the eye from the yellowing mess.
