PERENNIAL TULIPS! Great blooms! Huge, gorgeous dark-red, flowers with a plum purple base that are very tall. Grower’s Recommendation! Great cut flower. These giants are among the most weather resistant of all garden tulips, have exceptional perennial qualities and will produce many lovely flowers year after year. We recommend fertilization twice a year to improve their perennial nature. Originated in Belgium around 1700. Most popular landscape varieties because of the large cup-shaped petals and brilliant flower colors.
Darwin Hybrid: These hybrids have large flowers on long, sturdy stems, with brilliant colors in all shades between red and yellow. The flower is usually closed in the morning and opens to resemble a poppy as the day goes along. These are improved, larger-flowering Darwin types. Darwin hybrids usually bloom several weeks earlier than the regular Darwin types. Tulips look best in mass plantings. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.
