Delicate peachy silky petals, the Menton Exotic Tulip (Tulipa 'Menton Exotic') is a luscious creamy peach double Tulip with hints of rose, green, coral, and pink! These scented blossoms arrive a bit later in the spring season and have a lovely impact on the landscape!

The blossoms are set on top of a strong and sturdy stem that makes a great base for cut flowers and bouquets! Forming vase-shaped clumps of softly-hued green foliage forms a lovely backdrop to the gorgeous blooms!

Menton Exotic Tulip is a cold-hardy spring ephemeral throughout USDA growing zones 3 to 7, this vase-shaped clumping perennial bulb grows fast to 22-24 inches tall when in bloom and is incredibly easy to grow and care for! Forming tidy, polite naturalized groupings as the bulbs multiply year to year!

Planting and Application:

Tulips are spectacular for mass planting, as edging in long rows, drifts, and in groupings to maximize their luscious color! Menton Exotic Tulips light up Cottage and perennial borders, Rock gardens and mixed bulb plantings alike!

Menton Exotic also works great as container plants - either as the feature planting in multiples or as focal points among other spring flowering plants! Even indoor containers can enjoy these lovely gems for winter or early spring forcing! Whether grown in a bright sunny window or in pots around your seating areas, you and all your bees and butterflies will love these sweetly fragrant flowers that resemble bowl-shaped Peony flowers!

#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
