This is the one downfall of tulips. You have to deal with the big ugly foliage after the riot of colour has disapated. My method of trying to disquise this is to plant them amid other perennials, so that once the blooms are spent, the later perennials are starting to hide the tulip aftermath.
Here are a few of the tulips that are bang on today:
|this is the first year I've tried the fringed - quite unique|
|Short parrots with a high bush blueberry.|
And that is about all I have to say for today.
