Tulips can be finicky. They tend to not have the same perenniality that narcissus do. Having them come back successfully is a gamble. The secret to getting more years of bloom from them include having a good, loose, well-drained soil, planting them deeply, and feeding them after flowering. Oftentimes, once they have flowered, they expended so much energy that there is little left in the original bulb. Part of the success is starting with good size bulbs. What each company sells will vary. Smaller bulbs are often less expensive. Park districts and public gardens treat them as annuals because it is rare to have the entire planting come back the next year and put on the same display. An exception to the 'annual treatment' is that species types tend to be more long-lived. I don't think you should expect them to rebound next year.
