The tulips grown in Skagit Valley do not bloom according to a precise calendar and schedule predetermined by humans. Instead, the tulips bloom according to Mother Nature — their schedule depends on the weather, particularly the weather in late winter/early spring. The tulips and daffodils only bloom once a year. Many thanks to Alaska USA Federal Credit Union for sponsoring these updates.
We will publish photos here showing the current status of the tulips and daffodils grown here in Skagit Valley — Washington Bulb Company, Inc./RoozenGaarde plants the fields and the garden RoozenGaarde while Tulip Town plants the field and displays at Tulip Town. For more information on what is grown in the fields, go to www.tulips.com/bloommap.
As of February 24, 2021 there are no tulips blooming in Skagit Valley. The image shown here is in front of the Tulip Festival office in downtown Mount Vernon. Tulip and daffodil bulbs were planted under the hellebores last fall and as you can see, there is nothing blooming, but everything is growing. The plants that have the little buds are daffodils.
Check back here for updates as we have more information.
