One of my favorite bulbs is the tulip. I prefer the classic dutch flower like the one pictured here. Pink being the ultimate in beauty, at least for me. I usually plant new ones every year because they just don't look as nice the year after. When I've left mine for another year they always ended up being a bit smaller and not all bloomed again. I find it fun to get different colors and varieties each year anyway, because each spring I get to enjoy a new garden!
