The North Coast of California gives us the majestic Coast Redwoods, the tallest trees on this planet. The cool, coastal climate in Northern California allows for their amazing growth—plenty of fog, plenty of rain, and steady, temperate summers. This ideal environment responsible for "Redwood Curtain," is also what allows the cultivation some of the best bulb flower around, including our French Tulips.

The challenge for the flower farmer lies in the growing conditions needed for optimal French Tulip height and quality. Unlike standard tulips, which are grown in greenhouses and can be influenced by changing temperature and light conditions, French Tulips refuse to be manipulated in this way.

French Tulips do not tolerate glass greenhouse conditions--they prefer to be planted in hoop houses, where that cool, coastal weather (the same that helps those tall redwoods grow) can move freely through their rows.
