This rare color changing tulip begins its life golden yellow and orange, with salmon-rose appearing as wild stripes or speckles that intensify and deepen with age. No two of these cup-shaped blooms look the same, and each one stands on a contrasting yellow-green stem with broad lance-shaped leaves. El Nino is a valuable spring variety which is best appreciated when planted in a large swathe in the border, to showcase the individuality of each uniquely blended Tulip. El Nino is ideal for a flower arranging enthusiast as the tri-blended petals exude an artistic feel
Planting and Maintenance Info:
Single Late Tulips, formerly known as Darwin or Breeder Tulips, are the tallest class of all tulips. These tulips emerge in late spring and offer large colorful blooms on sturdy stems. Plant tulips in well-drained soil to ensure proper root formation. Exposure to full sun will bring out the rich colors that tulips offer, but some shade will enable a longer blooming period and still offer a colorful addition to your yard or garden.
Planting Tulip Bulbs - How to Plant Tulip Bulbs
When to Plant Your Tulip Bulbs:
If you want to fill your garden with color next spring, plant bulbs from October to December; Tulip bulbs can actually be planted right up until Christmas and still flower perfectly well in the following spring because they only need a short season of growth.
Where to Plant Your Tulip Bulbs:
Tulips perform best in full sun but will tolerate some shade. Tulips dislike wetness and require well-drained soil.They grow in most soils but if the soil is very dry, plant the bulbs a day after it has rained.
How to Plant Your Tulip Bulbs:
Prepare the site by removing any weeds or stones and use a fork or trowel to loosen and aerate the soil. Use a trowel to dig a hole large enough to fit all of the bulbs that you are planting. For large quantities, you may also dig a large bed. The depth of the hole should be twice the length of the bulb itself. Make sure the pointed end of the bulb is up in the ground.
In warmer climates plant bulbs deeper than 10 inches; the deeper you plant a tulip, the tougher it will be. Tulips planted deeper have thicker stems and fall over less often.
When planting tulips, it is nice to place them close to one another to avoid having them standing by themselves in the spring. This is one flower that always looks better in groups. You can place bulbs as close as six inches away from each other in the ground.
A great tip is to alternate rows of early, mid and late blooming tulips so you may enjoy tulips throughout the entire season!
Tulip as perennial:
Almost all Darwin Hybrid Tulips have proven to be good perennial so they would be your best bet if you are looking for years of colorful blooms.
