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 May 12, 2021 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival has ended. The tulips in Skagit Valley have been topped and are no longer blooming. The bulbs in the ground are busy growing and maturing, getting ready to be planted this fall and to become beautiful blossoms in the spring of 2022.
RoozenGaarde is a year-round garden planted with annuals that you can come and enjoy outside of tulip time. There is no admission charge. Tulip Town has a variety of activities that happen during the year, but none involve flowers.
Check back here for updates as we have more information. Thanks for being tulip fans!
