The Northcap Tulip bulb plant (Tulipa 'Northcap') are elegant perennial bulbs that look like whipped confectionery cream than a flower! Featuring large, round double blooms of ruffled and touseled white petals, they almost look good enough to eat!

Northcap is gracefully held aloft on strong stems above neat, compact clusters of wide blades of green and form charming rosettes! Emerging in spring, the blooms top off the landscape with the subtly sweet fragrance that members of the Tulip family are known for!

These flowering bulbs have incredible cold hardiness and ease of care that even a novice gardener can manage, and the size is ideal for anyone with a small yard! But these double blossoms will have a dramatic impact for sure! They multiply on their own over time without ever crowding!

Planting and Application:

Add creamy white whipped cream blooms among rock gardens, pollinator beds and pathway edges, grouping or creating rows to best showcase these illustrious plants! Use as edging and fast-growing, low border plants for butterflies and curious onlookers! Northcap is a lovely thriller and focal point in bridal white bouquets, so be sure to include a few in the cutting garden!

Mix into any perennial garden bed, without worry the roots will crowd out other plants. Once the blooms fade, the foliage then accepts the shade from the larger plants when they leaf out later in the spring! No room, or in a growing zone that doesn't support these bulbs? Plant in containers as an annual for porches and planter decoration all spring long!

  • Large Round Double Blossoms
  • Creamy & Dreamy White Ruffled Petals
  • Strappy Wide Green Rosettes
  • Cold Hardy Perennial Bulb
  • Late Spring Color in Beds, Borders & Planters

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Fall-planted bulbs should be planted in the fall 6 to 8 weeks before the ground freezes. Plant the bulbs pointed end up and at least 8-inches deep. The location should be mulched, well-drained and in full sun to part shade. Tulips cannot tolerate soggy conditions.

  • Full Sun & Part Shade
  • Moderate Moisture
  • Well-Drained Enriched Site
  • Deadhead After Bloom Fades
  • Cannot Tolerate Soggy Conditions
