A narrow tulip in bud that opens to a sharp star. The petal colouring turns to gold at the blooms tip, blending down along the edge. A poised flower that shows well in the garden, for colouring and form it is hard to go past. Flowers mid to late season.
The seemingly endless array of Tulips continues to amaze. Lily Tulips are lovely and curvaceous blooms. The slim lined flowers are extremely elegant with the tips of the petals gently arching outwards. Lily Tulips are terrific blended with more traditional shapes.
A simple way to remember when to plant your tulips is Mother`s Day! It is ideal because by this time of year the soil has cooled sufficiently for planting. It doesn’t have to be on the day but as long as you are around the date.
All our bulbs are ready to grow; they do not need to be chilled, which is one less thing to do.
It is a good idea to prepare the soil for their arrival by adding some delicious organic matter. Tulips need good drainage and at least six hours sun a day to flower at their best. Plant the bulbs 15-20cm deep with the pointed end up. Space your tulips 10-20cm apart, planting closer for a more spectacular show.
In most areas it is recommended you lift and store your Tulip bulbs once their foliage has browned. You don’t need to do this if you live in an area with frost, the soil is shaded or mulched through summer and the ground does not become soggy during their dormant period. In every other case it is recommended.
