Tulip Oratorio not only flaunts unusual urn-shaped, coral-pink flowers but each foliage blade is etched in maroon for a pin-stripe effect. Garden onlookers will be singing your praises when they spy Tulip Oratorio. The foliage alone is attention grabbing! Greigii Tulips are typically shorter than other types of Tulips but are long lived to provide an encore of flowers each spring. The large blossoms of Tulip Oratorio will provide harmonious color with Hyacinths as Gregii Tulips bloom around the same time.

Tulip General Information

Greigii tulips are short but have large blooms in contrast to the whole plant. Leaves are patterned with spots and stripes in brown or purple.

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.
