Can you you leave tulips in the ground all year long?
Some you can, Darwin hybrids and species tulips do very well. However, despite the fact tulips are fully hardy (and need cold weather over winter) large tulips like Tulip Mount Tacoma need big bulbs to grow to their full potential. Bulbs left in the ground can produce many smaller bulbs that will not be big enough for a good display the next year.
