    'Flair' is a great one to grow, and it wakes up spring with its flowers. They are variable, so each bloom will have an exciting and different look to it. A group of 'Flair' tulips in bloom is a mesmerizing sight. 'Flair' is known to return in following years.

    Excellent bulb to force. Needs a couple of weeks in pot to get root growth started, then 15 weeks of cold treatment (35 to 48 degrees). Blooms last longer if placed in "cool," sunny spot (60 degrees or so) to bloom. For this last move before bloom, I set mine in a basement under fluorescent lights; when it blooms, it gets moved upstairs to be appreciated.
    Six bulbs per six-inch pot in a well-draining mix. Original placement should allow bulb's shoulders to show above soil line.
    I've been forcing this particular cultivar for at least a dozen years.
