A All tulips can be planted in pots and will flower well the first year af­ter plant­ing. How­ever, if the pots are shaded by a build­ing, it tends to en­cour­age taller growth than usual, so here it’s best to plant shorter kinds such as early-flow­er­ing T. kauf­man­ni­ana (above), T. greigii, with at­trac­tively striped leaves, and early sin­gle tulips such as Dar­win and Tri­umph hy­brids.
