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.
ALL ABOUT TULIPS
Tulips are the most colorful of all spring flowers. They bloom in as many brilliant colors as a gardener could desire. Their beauty is timeless and they are also one of the easiest flowers to grow. Just plant the bulbs in the fall for flowers the following spring. Tulips come in enough colors, shapes, sizes and bloom times to inspire every gardener’s creativity. Tulips can be grown in flowerbeds and borders, in containers and in cutting gardens. Whether they're planted in groups of 10 or 10,000, tulips always put on an impressive show.
ENTRYWAYS & BORDERS: Planting tulips in flower beds and borders lets you start enjoying a colorful garden long before most perennials have emerged from their winter sleep. Welcome guests by planting a bed of tulips along your front walk. For mass plantings, you can count on the large flowers of Darwin Hybrid Tulips to always provide a big impact.
PLANTING IS AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3
1. Dig a hole 6” deep.
2. Set the tulip bulb pointy side up in the soil.
3. Cover the bulb with soil and water only if the soil is very dry.
Planting tulips side by side in a single row makes them look stiff and unnatural. Tulips look best when they are planted in informal groups of 5 or more bulbs. Rectangular, triangular or oval patterns (as shown in the photo at left) will make the planting look as full as possible and ensure the flowers are visible from all angles.
For best results, tulips should be planted in well-drained soil. Peat moss or compost can be added to improve drainage. Tulip bulbs should be planted pointy side up. If you are unsure which end should face up, plant the bulbs on their sides. Once the bulb starts growing, the plant will find its way to the sun.
CUT FLOWER GARDENS: Enjoy the fun of arranging bouquets of tulips for your own home or to share with friends and family. Planting bulbs in a cutting garden makes it easier to cut the flowers and bring the freshness of spring indoors. For cutting gardens, plant an assortment of different tulip flower types, including singles, doubles, fringed, lily-flowered and parrots.
