Say "Yellow to This Bright Species Tarda Tulip

  • Species Tulip
  • Bright Yellow Centers and White Margins
  • Perfect Front Border
  • Bi-color Blooms

Few flowers can make your mouth water. The Tarda Tulip (Tulipa tarda) is one of them. This lemony delight not only looks like dessert, it smells amazing, too! These star-burst beauties are the perfect way to ring in spring with pristine color and fun. Their gilded yellow petals are set off by white margins, and their pointed tips pay homage to lilies.

As a Species Tulip, these charming flower blooms max out at a pretty petite size. These bright blooms may not grow as tall as some spring bulbs, but with such vivid color, their presence can be seen from afar. In fact, they're the perfect way to end the winter grays and announce to the neighborhood that "SPRING IS HERE!"

Where should you plant these brilliant yellow blooms? Plant your Tarda Tulips in groups along a mulched path or as front planting in your English garden. 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 violets, reds, oranges, and whites.

Like most bulbs, Tardas do best bathed in sunshine. Unlike most bulbs, these rival the sun's radiance.

Luckily, you don't have to be a botanist or master gardener to care for them. Tardas are one of the lowest maintenance plants you can grow. Plant them in fall and wait. They do naturally fill in and multiply, so separating them every few years is a good idea. Then spread their sunshine to another part of your garden.

Species Tulips are some of the most fun early spring blooms to grace the garden. Tarda is Spanish for delay - as in don't delay and order these brilliant bulbs before we run out.

We will ship your bulbs based on the correct planting time for your area.
