Q.Fall Planted Relocated Tulips Starting To Grow In December Zone 6

Zone Phila., PA Zone 6 | Anonymous added on December 9, 2020 | Answered

I relocated tulip bulbs this fall, I am zone 6. While outside doing leaves I noticed tulip leaves peeking up from the new plantings. We haven’t had steady winter weather yet what is going to happen to the tulips ? Will they stop growing AND more importantly will they bloom in spring. And hey while I’m writing — all my grape hyacinths always start growing in late summer, leaves stay green all winter then they grow again in early spring and bloom. Nothing I’ve ever read mentions this.
