Pretty as a picture, Artist Tulip bulbs (Tulipa 'Artist') look to have been painted with a master’s hand! The warm orange blooms are feathered and streaked in green and feature sculpted petals that end in delightful points. Opening into wide stars, the outside color carries through to the interior. The rippled ruched edges add a finishing touch to these masterpieces!

Forming compact clumps of vivid green foliage, the upright, wide leaf blades create mounds on their own. The many blooms that rise up on slender stems form their own bouquets in your garden. Despite looking delicate, these members of the Tulip family carry the same cold-hardiness and durability the family is known for!

Artist Tulips and other spring-flowering ephemeral bulbs are so easy-care that even the novice gardener will have success! Their size allows landscapes large and small to enjoy their beauty, even pots and planters on porches, patios and in window boxes!

Planting and Application:

These warm sunset-hued blooms look fantastic waving in your perennial and cottage gardens, happily painting garden beds and borders in warm tones. Mingle among other larger perennials and shrubs to extend your growing season, and those later emerging leaves shade these tender bulbs from the hot summer sun.

Artist Tulip really shows off when planted en masse, in long rows and as low-borders along your driveway, sidewalks, your home's foundation and as edging to ease the transition between lawn and garden bed! Cutting gardens and pollinator gardens are both perfect for these incredible flowers!

  • Glowing Orange Pointed Petals
  • Dramatic Feathered Green Stripes
  • Soft Green Foliage Clumps
  • Great Cold-Tolerance & Easy-Care
  • Spring Color for Bouquets, Beds & Borders & Planters

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Tulip bulbs should be planted in the fall 6 to 8 weeks before a hard freeze. Plant pointed end up, at least 8 inches deep. The soil should be well-drained and in full to partial sun location. Tulips do not like wet soil so water only when planting if it gets very dry in the fall or during prolonged drought.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Moderate Moisture
  • Well-Drained Enriched Site
  • Deadhead After Bloom Fades
  • Rots in Soggy Soil

Artist Tulips will add a designer's touch to any garden and beat the winter doldrums with warm color! NatureHills.com ships your fall-planted bulbs in the autumn based on your climate and growing zone!
