Tulip Blue Wow

Tulip Blue Wow

Tulip Blue Wow thanks its name to its enormous show. It really gives a 'WOW' effect!
This extraordinary tulip variety is the same type of tulip as Tulip Harborlight & Tulip Ice Cream. Although these tulips are currently listed as Double Tulips, we believe that they will soon be listed in a completely new breeding class of their own. They are making tulip history!


We came across one of the Directors at the famous Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands admiring this amazing tulip variety in bloom at the Gardens. We were very surprised to see this variety in bloom for the first time, and so was he!


We like to call these new types of tulips 'Artichoke Tulips' because as the tulip emerges from its elongated bloom it really looks like a Globe Artichoke!
Tulip Blue Wow is a tulip which comes the closest to a true blue colored double tulip. Once the flower emerges, the green bottom gives an spectacular effect with countless almost blue petals almost growing on top of each other.


Tulip Blue Wow is a true eye-catching Tulip which we are proud to carry in our Elite Assortment!


We ship Topsize bulbs 12/+ CM!

How-To-Guides

Tulip Blue Wow

Did you know that there are over 3,000 unique varieties of tulips?! Tulips were first introduced to Europe in 1559 and over the next 100 years led to a speculative craze in which single tulip bulbs were sold for over 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman.
Today tulips are loved for their beautiful, upright flowers and gorgeous array of colors.

How to Grow Tulip Bulbs:

1. In the Fall, choose a spot that is mostly sunny or has only light shade. Also make sure that the location has fairly good drainage and does not tend to get waterlogged.

2. Planting tulip bulbs is fairly simple. Bulbs look much like a small onion, sometimes with a spike or point on one side and sometimes with wiry roots growing out of one. Plant with the spike pointing up.

3. Follow the rule of thumb when planting bulbs and give the bulbs at least 2 times their height of soil above them. Dig a 6-7 inch hole, drop the bulb into it and cover with soil. 

4. Regarding the spacing between bulbs, if planting in beds, leave approx 5-6 inches between each bulb. If you are planting in containers, you can cluster them a little closer together. 

5. After planting, water well so that the soil above the bulbs settles.

6. Tulip bulbs will flower in the spring. After the flowers die back in late spring or early summer, let the plant enjoy a drier, warmer rest period. After leaves die back, stop watering so that the bulb can rest.

7. In cooler zones, you can leave the tulip bulbs in the ground over winter so that they can receive their required period of winter cooling in order to flower the following Spring.
