BULBS - 

for Fall Planting 



























1 



Darwin Tulips 


PLANT BULBS THIS FALL FOR FLOWERING 
BEAUTY IN EARLY SPRING 

The beauty of your garden early next spring depends to a 
large extent on what you plant this fall. Tulips, Narcissi, 
Crocus and other bulbs listed in this pamphlet are available 
only in the fall and must be fall planted to obtain their de¬ 
lightful flowers in the spring. 

Ordering early will insure a complete selection. The bulbs 
will be sent at the proper time for planting. 

We offer top size bulbs only. Smaller bulbs may be pur¬ 
chased for less money but they do not have the vitality to 
produce good blooms. 

DARWIN TULIPS 

Darwin Tulips are the most popular of our spring bulbs. 
This is due to their remarkable brilliance and wide range of 
color, together with the ease with which the large, tall 
stemmed flowers are grown. 

The Darwin Tulip bulbs, in the show garden at the Rose 
Hill Nursery, have bloomed delightfully for several years. 

In June when the leaves turn yellow and dry up they are 
cut off and removed, the bulbs being allowed to remain un¬ 
disturbed in the ground. Annuals may be planted in the same 
space for summer bloom.
