Netherlands Flower Blooming Season

What is the flower blooming season for Keukenhof? If the Netherlands is having the warm spring that we are having in the Eastern US, I am wondering how late in the spring we could go and still see the gardens in full bloom. My husband is going on business, and the trip is not firm yet, and I was planning to join him this time if it were the right timing to see the flowers. Thanks for any information you can provide.

There is a practical answer to this one. If you google Keukenhof, you will find that www.keukenhof.nl is the homepage. One the first pages, it mentions 5/20 as the last date. If you cannot get to Keukenhof before that date, whether it is blooming or not is irrelevant.

It is blooming right now http://www.fodors.com/community/euro...dam-no-car.cfm

The Netherlands is having a very cold spring. Coldest April since 1987 in fact. I am hoping May will be better, though there is no sign of that just yet.

So if you are here before Keukenhof closes for the year you may still see flowers, but probably not Keukenhof at it's peak.
Lots more to Amsterdam, and the Netherlands than tulips though .
