Tulip, ‘Maja’

The fringed Tulip ‘Maja’ is a pale silvery-yellow flower with darker yellow inside. ‘Maja’ will return each spring for many years. An heirloom variety, ‘Maja’ was introduced in 1903. The frilled tulips are frilly only along the edges & otherwise look like the single smooth egg-shaped tulips they are descended from. Its fringe is sufficient to make it stand out distinctly, and is often described as resembling ice crystals.

The flowers are extremely long-lasting and set atop of tall, strong stems. Fringed tulips bloom in late spring and they are good for cut flowers, beds, and borders. Fringed Tulips are also known as Crispa Tulips. These tulips are a must-see, and a must have, with their delicate, lacy, fringed edges. Most fringed tulips open with petals arching outward.

Fringed Tulips: A relatively new and expanding division, these tulips have a clearly defined crystalline fringe and make very beautiful and artistic flowers that also look like the frayed edge of a piece of satin fabric. More and more people are becoming interested in fringed tulips – so much so, that these tulips now have their own group. It must be remembered, however, that because the tulips in this group are mutants from various other groups, the heights and flowering periods will vary somewhat among them. The one characteristic they have in common, though, is their finely incised petals.
