Tulip, Fringed Mix

Fringed Mix tulips are a beautiful group of only the best-fringed tulips! The flowers in this mix have a finely ruffled, crystalline fringe. Best used at focal points where the unusual flowers can be appreciated. This is a very elegant tulip that is as special in your garden as it is in a vase! These flowers are long-lived and good for striking arrangements. It is most effective in beds, borders or low walls. For the best effects, plant the bulbs in clusters of 5 to 15 bulbs, or scatter clusters throughout the garden or flower border. You’re sure to enjoy this outstanding tulip!

Fringed Tulips: A relatively new and expanding division, these tulips have a clearly defined crystalline fringe and make very beautiful and artistic flowers that also look like the frayed edge of a piece of satin fabric. More and more people are becoming interested in fringed tulips – so much so, that these tulips now have their own group. It must be remembered, however, that because the tulips in this group are mutants from various other groups, the heights and flowering periods will vary somewhat among them. The one characteristic they have in common, though, is their finely incised petals.

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.
