Tulips bloom at different times throughout the spring growing season. Some tulips bloom as early as April, other tulips bloom in May, and the latest tulips bloom in June.
The blooming schedule of tulips depends on weather elements such as the temperature and the amount of sunlight they have received. Bloom periods are also dependent on the shape and size of flower. Varieties of tulips that bloom early typically have shorter stems. Varieties that bloom late tend to grow taller.
Tulips are perennial flowers that should be planted in the fall. Under the right conditions, they will continue to bloom each spring.
