Answer: You're not alone - most gardeners find that hybrid tulips don't last very long unless you put a LOT of work into them. Tulipa kaufmanniana and T. greigii are categorized as hybrids with the characteristics of species tulips. Species tulips are the new trend because they are dependable bloomers, and can be used for naturalizing areas because they sprad readily. You can find many, many varieties of both these species in the Daffodil Mart catalog (7463 Heath Trail, Gloucester, VA 23061, ph# 800/255-2852). Enjoy!
