For the last couple of years I have been cutting my very old snow mound spirea because it needed thinning. Last year I fertilized and put mulch around it after clearing out the weeds etc. It is end of May now and right in the middle of the shoots of the spirea is a beautiful orange and red tulip. I am at a loss as to how it got there. Could and animal have buried a bulb or could it have come from seed?

I suspect one of your neighbors has one less orange and red tulip. You can thank the neighborhood gopher for that.
