Details

<p><span>The sunny yellow and orange tones of this tulip are suited to bedding ore more informal planting. It looks best on its own instead of mixed with other tulips so you can make the most of the varying shades it provides. We have grown it in a mixed border under a weeping cherry tree and the flowers appeared along with the pale pink cherry blossom, which clung to the drooping branches and mixed with the tulip's colorful bloom. In this position it received plenty of sunshine before the leaves unfurled on the tree. The soil was far from ideal, being heavy clay, but even here this tulip flowered for a couple of years. Darwin Hybrid Tulips are a cross breed between Tulipa Fosteriana and Darwin Tulip, resulting in a giant plant with huge bright flowers and sturdy stems. Very popular tulip for landscaping. Magnificent for cut flowers. Huge flowers for borders or beds. Darwin Hybrid Tulips have exceptional perennial qualities! Darwin Hybrid Tulips have an height of 18-26 Inches. Bulb Size: 12/+ cm</span></p>

How-To-Guides

Tulip Daydream

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.
