Re: Re: Re: Re: tulip longevity


Jim, Judy,
I'll post the list tonight. It's in my files at home. The interesting
thing about his list, as I recall, is that they are not all of only
certain types. He lists a few Triumphs among the long-lived, which I had
thought of, as a group, to be more short lived. And he doesn't
necessarily suggest all Darwins, which I would suggest, in general, are
longer lived. BTW, I am also of the impression that Fosteriana Tulips,
aka Emperor Tulips, are, in general, longer lived. They are also longer
blooming because they are early bloomers. and they can put on a terrific
show.

I'd like to see this also, even though most of the few tulips I
plant are of the species ilk. I'd love to have one of each...
Likely you have enough expressions of interest to post the list on
the list ?
