Planting and Application:

Early emerging butterflies and bees adore the nectar and pollen these mid-spring blossoms provide! Tulips light up Cottage and perennial borders, Rock Gardens, and mixed bulb plantings alike!

These short-statured flowers also excel when it comes to containers and will turn heads in your window boxes. When it comes to Species Tulips, you can never go wrong mixing varieties, so don't be afraid to pair these with any other spring ephemeral in your garden!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Like most bulbs, Tulips do best bathed in sunshine and rival the sun's radiance! Tulip Bulbs appreciate 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
