Tulip - Monsella
The Tulip 'Monsella', 'Tulipa double early', is a fall planted bulb. This tulip is a fragrant sport of Monte Carlo. Monsella is canary-yellow, feathered blood-red, while the inside is sulphur-yellow with blood-red flames. As their name implies, double early tulips bloom early in the season with long-lasting, rose-like double flowers which open flat in the full sun. When planted in a compact group, these short-stemmed tulips develop into a magnificent carpet of color. Combine them with early daffodils and hyacinths for a wonderful welcome to spring. These tulips bloom in early spring for a 3 week period.
For the best effects, plant the bulbs in clusters of 5 to 15 bulbs of one variety, or scatter clusters throughout the garden or flower border. Tulips do best in well-drained soil. It is advisable not to plant tulips in the same location in the garden year after year. If possible, plant in a somewhat sheltered location. Tulips are excellent for mass planting, rock gardens, containers and borders.
