A symbol of spring, tulips are the most popular spring bulbs and most gardeners reserve them a spot in the garden or containers. Grown for their attractive, vibrantly colored flowers, there are currently over 3,000 registered varieties, which are divided into fifteen groups, mostly based on the flower type, size, and blooming period of the tulip.

More and more people are becoming interested in Fringed Tulips - so these tulips now have their group. It must be remembered, however, that because the tulips in this group are mutants from various other groups, their heights and flowering periods will vary somewhat among them. The one characteristic they have in common though is their finely incised petals. Flowering in mid or late spring, they rise to 14-30 in. (35-75 cm) and bring elegance to the garden.
