multi-bouquet in every bulb

I planted firesprays about 15 years ago at a different house and have them blooming now at my current residence. Everyone is stunned by them and they even seem to naturalize. We have lots of deer in our area but they leave the firespray flowers and leaves alone. I am ordering more.
What stunners!

"Forced several pots of these through a bitter Wisconsin winter and was a bit concerned as they looked kind of scraggly a week or so back. Now I have the most stunning display of reds, oranges, and yellows in my office that I've seen folks taking photos of them. Glad I also have another 50 of them planted outside and they are all set to put on a beautiful display outside"
Stunning!

We planted some of these in a circle around the base of a tree in the fall, and are now enjoying their blooms! They are simply stunning! Animals dug up some of my other new bulbs, but left these alone. At my husband's request, we will be buying more of these beauties. I don't think you can have a favorite spring flower, but these might just be mine.
Stunning

Purchased these in 2015. They never fail to amaze me. They came up again this year and made a stunning display around my magnolia. Am ordering another hundred or so to do at the base of all my tress.
Grew fine, not vibrant

Like other bulbs I bought from Breck's, they grew fine. But the colors were dull and not at all vibrant. I like the look of the tulips in general. However, they're a wow in the picture and just a meh in person. I wouldn't rebuy.

Turn up the heat with the vibrant colours of the Firespray Tulip Mixture. This vibrant blend of fiery blooms shows itself to the world in early to mid spring, warming those still chilly days. This collection features Tulipa praestans, a low-growing tulip variety known for producing multiple blooms per bulb. The goblet-shaped flowers also sport distinctly pointed edges, a rarity in the tulip world. The resulting array of beautiful yellow, red and orange blooms pop out at every angle.

Plant your perennial tulips bulbs in the fall, prior to the first frost, for gorgeous spring colour. The warm-blooded Firespray tulip mixture prefers full to partial sun. Place the bulbs 6 inches deep and 3 to 6 inches apart in an area with good drainage in clay, loamy or sandy soil. Excellent for naturalizing, these 8- to 10-inch tall perennials are hardy in zones 3 through 8 and will return each spring in greater numbers.

Offering a rich, vibrant colour palette and unique petals, Tulipa praestans add a touch of festivity whether they're standing alone or planted beside others. Line your walkways, paths and road edges with this mixture for a fiery display or intersperse them among daffodils and standard tulips for a riot of spring colour. Say goodbye to winter's chill with the Firespray tulip mixture.
