Tulip General Information

Fosteriana tulips are commonly referred to as Emperor tulips. They have perfectly formed single bowl shaped flowers and naturalize pleasantly.

Tulip Plant Care

Plant in well drained soil at least 6" deep and 6" apart. Foliage should not be removed until withered as energy is being stored for the next growing season. Stems can be cut back to maintain appearances if desired. Interested in forcing bulbs? Visit our Useful Links page.
