      Comments about High Country Gardens Tulip clusiana Bulbs Cynthia:

      Have a fenced in garden area with patio, view of's our outdoor living space. First time in many, many years I've had protection from marauding deer for gardens of my own. Going a bit crazy with tulips since haven't used them in so long. These are up and looking healthy...can't wait until for blooms...

      Q & A

      Suggested Companion Plants:

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
