Tulip, ‘Purple Prince’

Triumph Tulip, ‘Purple Prince’ has become a popular standard of the large-flowered Triumphs. Its outer petals are grape-juice purple or rich bright lilac-purple. As the bloom ages, a faint lilac-violet flame provides highlights that can make it seem lit from within. The interior is beet-purple with a yellow star in the bottom of the egg-cup. The sturdy stem lifts the flower to a medium height. The purple bloom color will make a nice contrast with Tulip Apricot Beauty. A good companion to purple hyacinths. Also beautiful between red-leafed perennials like Heuchera. A trouble-free variety for the garden and is nice in bouquets as well.

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.
