Arabian Mystery Tulip (Tulipa ' Arabian Mystery') is a brilliant two-tone bloom that is a dramatic rich reddish-purple that fades into pure white edges! These cupped blooms have silky petals and stand tall atop their sturdy stems and are surrounded by lush green foliage!

Gorgeous eye-catching bi-color blooms look fantastic in the garden and will be surrounded by curious neighbors and nectar-seeking pollinators from far and wide! The dramatic dark purple lights up the floral bouquet and perfumes your dining and bedside table!

Arabian Mystery Tulips are hardy throughout USDA growing zones 3-7, being highly adaptable and very cold-hardy! Fast-growing, these sun-loving perennial spring-flowering bulbs gradually colonize neat and tidy groupings over time!

Planting and Application:

Tulips are excellent cut flowers when cut early, so make sure to bring some flowers inside so you can continue marveling at them! These full and flirty blooms look fantastic in containers in large potted groupings or as specimen thrillers, highlighted under a cloche after being forced in the winter, or as a single accent in a fancy urn surrounded by moss.

Arabian Mystery Tulip looks lovely as edging along garden beds and borders long after the flowers fade. Add bi-color interest to Perennial gardens and add drama to Cottage gardens in grace while forming tidy clumps and drifts of elegant color that feed the bees and butterflies. Plant them in groupings to maximize their glorious blooms!

  • Majestic Deep Purplish-Red Flowers With Bright White Edges
  • Blooms Later Than Other Tulips
  • Large Double Flowers
  • Low Maintenance Green Foliage Clumps
  • Fall-Planted, Early Spring-Flowering Perennial
  • Early Spring Color, Beds & Borders, Containers & Cut Flowers

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Bulbs require full sun and well-drained soil to do their best. Appreciating afternoon shade in warmer hardiness zones where the sun is intense. Any soil type is suitable so long as it is not soggy. Plant in the soil with pointed ends up 3 times as deep as the bulbs are tall. Add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Provide moderate moisture during drought and deadhead after flowers fade. But keep the leaves so they can make food for the bulb and next year's flowers! Not only is it strong, but it also has incredible endurance. Its blooms endure through spring showers and days of sunshine. Fall-planted bulbs need well-drained soil with moderate moisture needs.

  • Full Sun For Strongest Stems & Growth
  • Moderately Moist Well-Drained Soil
  • Deadhead After Bloom, Prune to Ground When Leaves Yellow
  • Very Cold Hardy
  • Deer & Rodent Resistant

Gorgeous two-tone blooms, the dramatic Arabian Mystery Tulip melds steamy dark nights and bright white touches to kick up the paradox between dark and light! Order yours today and Nature Hills will ship your bulbs based on the correct planting time for your growing zone!
