Fall tulip planting readies festival for spring

November 03 2017

Black Diamond, Candy Apple, Ad Rem, Parrot Purple Prince—all names of tulip varieties that will bloom in pots in the front of our office during the festival, thanks to Tulip Town. They supply the bulbs and dirt and watch over the pots until the spring.

RoozenGaarde/Washington Bulb Co. helps us by supplying cut tulips for our various “out of season” activities that need tulips—including our Unveiling on Nov. 14, our Tulip Ambassador event in February, and our Gala in March. They are able to do this because they have a greenhouse operation that supplies tulips year-round to consumers and our festival.
