Tulip, Lily Flowering Mix

The Lily-Flowering Tulip ‘Mix’, come in various colors. The flowers are elegant with their pointed petals which bow outward at the top. The narrow, graceful and reflexed petals are sensational on strong stems. The lily-flowering tulips perennialize without naturalizing, so there is no need to lift them to divide bulbs, & they can remain in their location indefinitely. They have stunning flowers with a mild fragrance, a rarity among tulips.

Lily-Flowering Tulip: These tulips have a unique shape where the blossom resembles a lily, or, sometimes, an urn. Long, pointed petals that are curved back create this effect. From above, the open flower can look like a six-pointed star. Lily-Flowered Tulips aren’t available in dozens of different varieties, but there are compensations – their beautiful shape, for one. As well, several varieties of Lily-flowered Tulips are noted for petals edged in vibrant, contrasting colors. They are quite tall and known for their long-lasting elegant flowers. Do not prune foliage until it has died back. If flowers are used for bouquets, leave as much of the foliage as possible on the plant. Lily-flowering tulips reliably come back every year. Lily-flowering tulips are not only reliable, but they also have a look of elegance. Lift the bulbs about every 5 years or so and replant when they become too crowded.

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.
