May the Tulips Bloom!

Ulster County Quadricentennial Tulip Bulb Planting Campaign

In 2009, New York State will celebrate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s famous voyage up the river bearing his name and the influence of the Dutch on the Hudson Valley.

We are hoping to blanket the county with 100,000 red and yellow tulips in May 2009 by getting the bulbs to municipalities, schools, community and civic groups, historic sites, libraries, garden clubs and community beautification committees for public planting projects.

If you are a member of a group or organization that can plant bulbs in Ulster County, ask your group to plan a project. The Ulster County Legislature has agreed to supply the bulbs.
