What year did you plant these, Rita? How long have they lasted in your garden?

I wrote this long ago and sent it but the article is just getting published now. Those Emperor Tulips have been coming up every spring since and it was many, many years ago.

Yay! I love tulips, but rarely buy them because of the expensive annual investment. Thank you!

Think the Emperor tulips are a Fosteriana Tulip, which is a species I have some Kaufmania tulips that have been coming up for the last 7 years, they are also a species tulip.
Thumb of 2017-01-18/crawgarden/a00f0f Pic of Humilis Violacea which should be around for several years.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
