Tulips are early, mid and late spring bloomers. Make sure you know what you are buying. Today my home and many early spring blooming tulips are covered with snow. Remember where tulips come from - Holland. They don't dislike snow; in fact, they require a certain amount of cold.
Looking out my window just now at my Fairy garden, I see them standing tall, blooms closed and waiting for the sun. Snow is melting quickly and turning to moisture. The mid and late spring bloomers will do just fine.
