Tulips collect water & Paint fades within a year - even in the shade
These tulips are really cute. But I had to drill little holes in the bottoms of the tulips to allow drainage, which was a pain to do. Then I spray-painted them in hopes of reducing rust and maintaining their color longer. After a year, the colors are quite faded -- even though they are in the shade all of the time! Not happy that these required so much to make them usable and only lasted one year. They should have thought about the drainage problem when it rains.

I bought three sets of these and I am ordering three more. I love them and get compliments on them everyday.

Gorgeous Lawn Tulips
I purchased these on a whim thinking they would add a little color to my landscaping. Boy was I right! I absolutely love them, my kids love them and even my husband wondered why I didn't get more than one set. Since then I have ordered a second set and also a set of the daisys. Although Tulips are my favorite flower, I have a small area next to the garage that the daisys would fit perfect. Every time I drive up to my house I love them more.

Tulip stakes are just like what's shown - my only request would be a little 'leg' on the bottom of the stake to keep them from falling over.

These are even more brightly painted than pictured here, and add great fun to my otherwise monotoned plantings in one corner of my yard. As suggested by others here, I drilled a couple of small holes in the bottom of each tulip for water drainage, and I fully intend to leave them in place until the snow flies, at which time I'll be itching to bring them out again in the spring! Love 'em!

BRIGHTENS MY LANDSCAPING!
These tulips are bright and very well made. I did clear coat them because they are painted metal & might chip. Again, like the other items I bought from here, these are a perfect item to brighten up your landscaping. You can (carefully) shape each leaf into all different positions. You have to put them in the ground by pushing on the stake, NOT the flower. The ONLY issue I have is that when it rains, the tulips fill with water, so I usually pull them up & empty the water. But I would still recommend them to everyone.

Per other reviews, i drilled a small hole in the bottom of each tulip for rain drainage and sprayed them with a clear finish. They are very bright and cheery. Be sure to use a gloss finish, i used satin on the daisies i bought and it kind of dulled the bright colors. Wish they had more flowers, i'd order them all!!!!
