The subdued pink and pale yellow Flaming Memory Tulip (Tulipa 'Flaming Memory') conjures memories of flames but in a pastel version! The ruffled petal edges carry on the theme by looking like the flames themselves! The buttery yellow petals are licked with burgundy-pink fire ombre fashion down the middle of each silky petal!

The vase-shaped clumps of lance-shaped leaves are lovely foils to these unique blooms. Forming naturalizing clumps throughout the sun garden, the bees and butterflies dance through the pastel fire while sipping nectar all spring! You'll want a few extra plants around your garden for gorgeous bouquets!

Flaming Memory Tulip is remarkably cold-hardy throughout USDA growing zones 3 to 7 and grows 14-16 inches in height when in bloom! Very resistant spring ephemerals, Tulips are fast-growing and love the sun! Low-maintenance perennial bulbs, Tulips can even be forced indoors for winter décor!

Planting and Application:

Flaming Memory Tulips add lush blossoms to your Cottage and Cut Flower borders, as well as Rock gardens, Mixed bulb gardens, and Perennial plantings! Adding color and cheer when used in rows, groupings, or en masse to create larger displays that maximize Flaming Memory's luscious pastel colors! Fantastic space-saving blooms that look fantastic lining walkways and garden edges in tidy bunches!

Even pots and planters gain lovely focal points when a few bulbs are added among other spring flowering plants or in groupings as the feature planting! Porches and patios light up, and deck seating areas gain scented jewels! Plant in large groupings in shallow dishes, terra cotta pots, and mixed or specimen planters!

  • Fringed Buttery Yellow & Soft Burgundy Two-Tone Blooms
  • Luscious Cut Flowers & Indoor Forced Winter Décor
  • Gorgeous Clumps of Soft-Green Foliage
  • Pollinator Friendly & Easy to Grow!
  • Spring Accents, Beds & Borders, En Masse & Containers

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Tulip Bulbs require full sun and well-drained soil. 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 ground with pointed ends up 3 times as deep as the bulbs are tall. Fall-planted bulbs need well-drained soil with moderate moisture needs. Add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Deadhead after flowers fade, but let the leaves remain so they can make food for the bulb and next year's flowers! Not only are they strong, but Tulips also have incredible endurance. The blooms endure through spring showers, occasional sleet, and unexpected days of hot sunshine.

  • Full Sun For Strongest Growth
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead After Flowers Fade & Prune Mounds After Leaves Yellow
  • Deer Seldom Bother Them
