Tulip, ‘Early Glory’

‘Early Glory’ is an extremely nice Triumph Tulip with a delicate, light fuchsia-purple color. This mid-spring bloomer is shorter than Single Lates, just 16-18 inches high and flowering about 10 days earlier. They add depth and quick-blooming style to border fronts. Lance-shaped foliage and sturdy stems make these popular for indoor forcing and cut-flower arrangements. You’re sure to enjoy this outstanding tulip!

Triumph: Triumph tulips, developed through hybridization, consist of a large class of cultivars, offering a wide range of colors and heights. They come in every possible shade of color possible for tulips, including some wonderful pastels. They are particularly esteemed for their beautiful, traditional “tulip” flower shape. They are a showy group with strong stems and are excellent choices for beds or borders. Poor weather during their flowering period will have little effect on these tulips. Many Triumph tulips are suitable for forcing; they make outstanding cut flowers with a long vase life. All in this group are also quite content in the garden. Tulips look best in mass plantings. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Tulip bulbs should be planted immediately after received in the fall. In extremely warm climates, plant when the ground cools. Grow in sun in informal groupings of 5 or more bulbs. Plant bulbs 3-4 inches deep or about two times the height of the bulb and 5" apart in well-drained soil with plenty of humus. Set the bulbs firmly in place, with the pointed ends facing upward. Cover the bulbs with soil and water thoroughly. Remove old flowers leaving as much stem and foliage as possible until they die down. To force, plant bulbs in containers with soil and cool at 40°F for 15 weeks.
