Tulip Miniature Naturalizing Collection

Tulip Miniature Naturalizing Collection

We are very proud to be offering this exceptional collection of five different Miniature Tulip varieties which are known for their excellent ability to naturalize. This collection has been tried and tested and has proven to be particularly well suited for Southern States in the U.S. where the winter period tends to be shorter. These Miniature Tulip varieties can handle the warmer climate zones and thrive well together. Deer tend to leave Miniature Tulips alone.


This Miniature Tulip Naturalizing collection contains the following varieties:


Right Top: Tulip Bakeri Lilac Wonder
Found in the wild on the island of Crete at the Omalos Plains at an altitude of 400 Feet. Lilac Wonder is very rich flowering tulip variety. The pink flowers open when the sun comes out and their yellow hearts appear to be painted on. Even on cloudy days when the sun is not out, the closed flowers are still a beauty on its own. Height: 8 Inches and blooms Mid-Late April.


Left Bottom: Tulip Clusiana Hybride Tinka
Tulip Tinka is a crossing of Clusiana and Batalinii. Lemon yellow blooms with red change into a lighter cream white as the flower matures. When the sun comes out the flowers will open up. Tulip Tinka is a rich flowering variety and excellent for naturalizing in the border. Height 10 Inches and blooms mid-late April.


Middle: Tulip clusiana Peppermint Stick
A strong selection of the clusiana family also known as 'The Lady Tulip'. Cherry red color and wide white edging. The heart of the bloom has an antracite to black coloring which is quite distinctive. Tulip Peppermint Stick originates from the Himalaya Mountain Region. Height 12 Inches and blooms end April.


Right Bottom: Tulip Sylvestris
Tulips Sylvestris is also known as the 'Woods Tulip' or 'Vineyard Tulip'. In Europe, this yellow tulip variety is used as a naturalizing tulip for graveyards, vineyards and patios. Tulip Sylvestris is well known for its strong naturalizing potential. The bulbs reproduce small 'runners' in the ground which will produce foliage. If the bulbs are situated on a spot with plenty of sun, the foliage will throw more new flowers. The flowers have a sweet fragrance comparable to the scent of rapeseed blossom. Height 10 Inches and blooms mid-late April.


Left Top: Tulip Batalinii Bright Gem
Tulip Bright Gem originates from Iran where it was discovered in the wild. Its uniquely shaped blooms start of creamy yellow and mature into a pretty bronze shade. Excellent for naturalizing and thrives well in a sunny location. Height 4 Inches and blooms end April.


We ship Top-size bulbs on all varieties for optimal performance (Essential for naturalizing purposes).
Each Collection carries an equal amount of bulbs per variety.

Details

Species Tulips (often called miniature or botanical tulips) can still be found in the wild. Species Tulips are the best tulips available for naturalizing. They like well-drained soil and are excellent for the rock garden or an eye-catching spot in the border! Species or Miniature Tulips have an height of 6-12 Inches. Bulb Size: 5/7 cm

Species tulips open early and flower abundantly with a natural look. They stay nice and close to the ground, and they seem to be in flower as soon as they emerge from the soil.

Their bright colors make them true eye-catchers in spring. In early spring, when the garden, terrace or balcony has little to offer in the way of visual interest, Botanical tulips brighten things up straightaway. The striped leaves of many varieties make these even more appealing. Also important to note is that these ‘wild’ tulips won’t be bothered by wind and weather.

Species tulips catch the eye because of their inflorescence and cheery range of colors. In addition, the graceful manner that their flowers open and their pretty foliage make them attractive before, during and after flowering.

In other words, Species tulips are simply bursting with charming characteristics. Many Species tulips can simply be left to naturalise. This means that they don’t have to be lifted from the ground every year. If you would rather take them out, however, wait until June when the foliage will have withered.

Species tulips prefer a sunny spot. In October/November, plant them with their ‘noses’ pointing upward and cover with 2,5 to 3 Inches of soil.

How-To-Guides

In addition to the large cultivated tulips, there are also varieties that are known as ‘botanical tulips’. These tulips are particularly suitable for garden planting since they can remain undisturbed in the soil after flowering and will emerge again next year! Botanical tulips are also referred to as ‘wild tulips’ or ‘dwarf tulips’ due to their low height. Their height is one of the factors that makes them perfect for planting in a flower bed as well as in rock gardens and special little spots.

With so many different varieties to choose from, they can create a real riot of color in the garden or even in flower containers. Over the years, botanical tulip varieties have often been awarded the ‘flower bulb of the year’ title. This says a lot about their rising popularity! The sizes of these bulbs are 6 to 10 cm so smaller than most tulip bulbs but their numbers will easily increase year after year. Botanical tulips are not just exceptionally beautiful flowers in their own right but can also be combined with other spring-blooming flowers.

These stunning tulips should be planted in the fall. Choose a sunny spot for them, and you will be enjoying their profusion of flowers from April to June. You can also leave them undisturbed and they will pop up again the following year for another wonderful display.
