Tulip, ‘Ile de France’

Red, red, red. Signal red, ‘Ile de France’ is the reddest of all! Glowing cardinal-red. Pointed, curved petals of vibrant red that shimmer at the smooth folds and have a poised, rounded form. This is a Grower’s Recommendation! These large tulips have strong stems. They will create a very dramatic border or mass planting. Bring them indoors for a stunning cut-flower bouquet.

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.
