Tulip bulbs

Each November, Sunset landscape supervisor Rick LaFrentz plants 7,300 tulip bulbs at our Menlo Park campus. Patience does pay off ― five months later, we have a spring show.

Because we’re in a warm-winter area (Sunset climate zone 15), tulips don’t overwinter well here, so new bulbs are ordered and planted each fall.
