Tulip, ‘Elegant Lady’

The Lily-Flowering Tulip ‘Elegant Lady’ – as its name suggests, is a very lovely, elegant and graceful flower. Its slim, pointy petals are about the color of butter-cream frosting with a blush-pink overlay that will look so yummy in the garden, especially in the midst of violas. The blush-pink color will then age to rich pink with a pure white base. This variety is absolutely astonishing when the flowers are completely opened up. Sure to turn heads! These elegant pointed flowers will stand out in any bouquet. These graceful flowers with pointed reflexed petals deserve much wider use. Their long stems and more relaxed blooms make them ideal in arrangements and in mixed spring borders.

Lily-Flowering Tulip: These tulips have a unique shape where the blossom resembles a lily, or, sometimes, an urn. Long, pointed petals that are curved back create this effect. From above, the open flower can look like a six-pointed star. Lily-Flowered Tulips aren’t available in dozens of different varieties, but there are compensations, their beautiful shape, for one. As well, several varieties of Lily-flowered Tulips are noted for petals edged in vibrant, contrasting colors. They are quite tall and known for their long-lasting elegant flowers. Do not prune foliage until it has died back. If flowers are used for bouquets leave as much of the foliage as possible on the plant. Lily flowering tulips reliably come back every year. Lily flowering tulips are not only reliable, but they also have a look of elegance. Lift the bulbs about every 5 years or so and replant when they become too crowded.
