Plant of the Day: Tulip

I’ve learned the hard way deer enjoy gnawing on tulip bulbs, but did you know tulip petals can be eaten? As tulips bloom only 3-7 days a year, make the most of these beauties and use as a beautiful garnish at your next gathering! With over 3,000 varieties to choose from, you have plenty of options. Don’t eat the bulb though – you will get sick!

Culinary uses aside, you can always cut and place in a vase. The stem will grow an additional inch or so, giving you more time to view and enjoy the beautiful bloom and blossom.
