Think of a warm shade midway between 'Pink Impression' and 'Apricot Impression, and you'll have the idea. Expect the same large blooms and strong performance in the garden.
Darwin Hybrid Tulips are all single-flowered varieties with long-lasting flowers on strong stems that make them perfect for bedding and for cutting. The brilliant colors of these very popular Tulips show up beautifully in the landscape. Darwins usually give an excellent performance for several years. They are good companions with Daffodils, and force well. Wind and weather resistant.
We call Tulips the “lipsticks of the garden” because they provide a finishing touch that brings spring borders to life. The blooming season commences in April here in Connecticut and extends into early June. Tulips are happy in any good garden soil, given that it is neither soggy nor solid clay. Full sun is recommended (at least 6 hours or more).

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.
