Bastogne’ will be extremely long lived in beds or bouquets. The most superb, dark red Triumph Tulip, ‘Bastogne’ is blood-red with cardinal-red flames and plum anthers. Lightly scented. This midspring bloomer has a distinctively angular cup shape. Shorter than Single Lates, just 16-18 inches high and flowering about 10 days earlier, they add depth and quick-blooming style to border fronts. Lance-shaped foliage shows faint striping, and sturdy stems make these popular for indoor forcing and cut-flower arrangements. Best in full sun with some mid-day shade. You’re sure to enjoy this outstanding tulip!
Triumph: Triumph tulips, developed through hybridization, consist of a large class of cultivars, offering a wide range of colors and heights. They come in every possible shade of color possible for tulips, including some wonderful pastels. They are particularly esteemed for their beautiful, traditional “tulip” flower shape. They are a showy group with strong stems and are excellent choices for beds or borders. Poor weather during their flowering period will have little effect on these tulips. Many Triumph tulips are suitable for forcing; they make outstanding cut flowers with a long vase life. All in this group are also quite content in the garden.
Tulips look best in mass plantings. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.
