Not happy with Costco tulips

* Update: I found out after writing this blog that the tulips I like is called “Triumph.”  So, basically I bought the wrong kind of tulip bulbs. But, my review stays the same.  The bulbs I bought from Costco didn’t bring me much joy and satisfacion.

* This is my personal opinion.  Some (a lot of) people may not agree with me.  Additionally, I still have a faith in Costco, because the flowers did look like the picture on the package.  I didn’t know there were differnt breeds of tulips.  Costco was selling less expensive kind.

Last year, I bought some tulip bulbs from Costco, but they were disappointing.  Flowers bloomed OK, but I was not satisfied with the quality and performance of them.

These Costco Tulips were not the kind of tulips that most people desire.  These were “K-Mart versions” of tulips.  Flower were small and “ugly”.  They bloomed for only a few days.  It was cute, I did it once, but I shall not repeat it this year.  I will buy more expensive tulip bulbs from local garden center.

Below picture is tulips I brought from Costco (2015).  All 50 bulbs produced flowers similar to this.

At the same time last year, I bought a few tulip bulbs from local garden center.  They were much more expensive.  But they brought me more joy and satisfaction.  Flowers stayed bloomed for much longer time.  I am looking forward to grow these tulips again this Spring.
