Details

Like the pure white "Purissima, Tulip Sweetheart makes a very effective bedding plant. The bright flowers add a glowing quality to any design. Underplant with white Anemone Blanda or yellow violas, or mix it with later daffodils like the yellow Narcissus 'Quail'. Enhance the white in the tulip with the pheasant's eye, N. poeticus. This tulip will also do well in an informal setting, growing with spring perennials in a mixed border. For a stronger yellow you could use 'Yellow Purissima' or 'Golden Emperor' and for white there is always 'Purissima'. Emperor Tulips have an height of 14-20 Inches. Bulb Size: 12/+ cm

How-To-Guides

Tulip Sweetheart

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.
