True royalty, the Pretty Princess Tulip (Tulipa 'Pretty Princess') takes beautiful and adds its own magic to it. Not only are these flowers fascinating to look at, but you'll also love the fragrance it brings to your garden! While this Tulip has petals in the classic cupped shape of a spring-flowering Tulip, it's anything but ordinary. Pretty Princess Tulips are light pink with flairs of darker pink throughout.
You'll love watching these flowers bloom one to a strong and sturdy stem. They make excellent cut flowers and will bring both color and fragrance to any room they grace. The blooms attract butterflies and bees and slowly colonize gradually forming naturalized bunches throughout the garden! Even a hummingbird or two will stop by to check out these luscious blossoms.
The low-maintenance vase-shaped clumps of soft green foliage look great long after the flowers fade. Pretty Princess Tulip is a hardy spring ephemeral throughout USDA growing zones 3 to 7 and grows to a graceful clump 14-16 inches tall and nearly as wide.
Pretty Princess Tulip is good for forcing indoors to bring color and fragrance to your home's dining table or coffee table in the bright sun! Pick up a fancy urn, shallow dish of moss, or a special forcing vase to enjoy these blooms in the winter. Wonderful gifts and pretty vase arrangement additions, you'll brighten anyone's day with their subtle rosy pink color and unique flame pattern!
Tulips have lovely foliage that looks great among other bulbs and as edging along garden beds and borders. Highlighting perennial gardens and Cottage gardens in grace while forming tidy clumps and drifts of elegant color. Tulips are lovely container additions that light up other spring ephemerals or annual blossoms. Or plant them in groupings to maximize their glorious blooms.
Bulbs require full sun and well-drained soil. Appreciating afternoon shade in warmer growing 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. Deadhead after flowers fade, but let the leaves remain so they can make food for the bulb and next year's flowers! Not only is it strong, but it also has incredible endurance. Its blooms endure through spring showers and days of sunshine. Fall-planted bulbs need well-drained soil with moderate moisture needs. Add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results.
