Tulip General Information

Double Late Tulips have extremely large blooms that resemble peonies. Their blossoms can be up to 4" across when fully opened. Ideal choice for rock gardens, beds, borders, and indoor forcing.

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.
