|Is there a type of tulip that produces more than one flower or bloom per bulb and is lower to the ground than the traditional tall-stemmed-one-flower variety? Also, what is a good variety that would grow in Zone 4?|
|Most tulips are single bloomers, but there is a small group of multiple bloomers sometimes called bunch-flowering. Some low growers in that group include the following:|
Tulipa praestans 'Fusilier' with scarlet red blooms on 10-inch stems.
Tulipa praestans 'Unicum' has reddish/orange and white blooms and reaches about 8 inches.
'Toronto' and 'Georgette' are two other multi-flowering varieties.
Greigii hybrids are dwarf tulips, using growing 8-14 inches tall. There are many to choose from and they do well in northern climates such as yours.
Dutch Gardens has a wide variety of tulips. The website is www.dutchgardens.com, or call 1-800-818-3861 for info or a catalog.
