Plant tulips in mass for an unforgettable effect. These tulips are suited to flower containers, they are excellent for rock gardens, beds, and borders. They are available in many different pastel colors. Many cultivars are good for indoor forcing.

Darwin Hybrid: These hybrids have large flowers on long, sturdy stems, with beautiful colors in all shades between pink and yellow. The flower is usually closed in the morning and opens to resemble a poppy as the day goes along. These are improved larger-flowering Darwin types. Darwin hybrids usually bloom several weeks earlier than the regular Darwin types. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: The product should be planted immediately after received in the fall. In extremely warm climates, plant when the ground cools. You may plant earlier or later as long as the ground is not too warm or frozen. 1. Dig a hole 3-4 inches deep or two times the height of the bulb. 2. Set the bulbs firmly in place, with the pointed ends facing upward. 3. Cover the bulbs with soil and water thoroughly. Grow in sun in informal groupings of 5 or more bulbs. Plant bulbs in fall 3-4 inches deep or about two times the height of the bulb and 5" apart in well-drained soil with plenty of humus. Remove old flowers leaving as much stem and foliage as possible until they die down. Plant bulbs in containers with soil and cool at 40° for 15 weeks. Follow these easy to grow tips.
