Winter Tulips (I Think)

teri added on March 15, 2011 | Answered

I live in AZ and someone gave me some gorgeous tulips in the month of February. Here in AZ, winter isn't the same thing as winter back east. Are they winter tulips and do they need to be stored during our summer? if so, how?

They should stay in the ground during the summer (they like hot, dry soil in the summer) but they do need to be chilled in the winter. In the fall, dig them up and store them in the vegetable drawer of a fridge for at least 6 weeks. Then you can plant them back out again.
