Tulips growing on the tulip fields are mostly grown for the flower bulb and not for the flower itself. Most tulip fields are therefore headed after 2 or 3 weeks of flowering so that more energy can go to the flower bulb instead of the flower. In Keukenhof Gardens and at the tulip show gardens, the tulips are not cut back and therefore the tulips there will bloom until mid-May.
