In a small patch of the Jules Janick Garden, spring has sprung earlier than everywhere else. A steam pipe buried 6-8 feet beneath the surface makes the soil just the right temperature for 1,200 Colorblend iimagination tulips planted by student workers to emerge. The garden is located adjacent to the Purdue Horticulture and Landscape Architecture building.
