Top 10 Tulip Favorites

Our top tulips were chosen for their wide variety of color, size, and bloom time.

There’s nothing quite as welcoming in a winter-weary backyard as a bright sea of tulips ruffling in a spring breeze. Perhaps the most beloved bulbs of all time, tulips come in endless combinations of color, shape and size. And they bloom at so many different times that you can plan to have tulips all season long.

Becky Heath of Brent and Becky’s Bulbs knows just about every new and old variety on the market. We asked her to help us narrow down our search for the best of the best tulip bulbs. We organized them by category and included bloom time as well. Use this list to help choose your favorites for planting next fall.

Best Multiple Flower: Happy Family

Zones 3 to 9

Grow happy little tulip families with this fun variety. The petals are purplish-pink and sometimes have a fine white line. This wonderful multiflowering tulip has one large flower, one medium flower and several small blooms: an entire family on one 14- to 16-inch stem!

Why we love it: Gardeners adore getting more bang for their buck, and this tulip reliably grows several blooms per stem.

Bloom time: Mid- to late spring.
