    How do you keep cut tulips from drooping? I've even cut them under water. In 24 hrs they still droop!

    My favorite flowers are Tulips, and I saw the most beautiful and awesome in Seattle, WA where my son lives, here in TX is very difficult to grow them, and I hate it.

      @Lbarnett1969 You should plan to go to Holland Michigan for their annual tulip festival held each May.
