We wanted a fresh look at Lily-flowered Tulips and so planted several hundred bulbs from about a dozen varieties. Their shapely petals and dancer's posture immediately suggested to us a group of young ballerinas in full attire, arching and stretching to relax before a performance. We recommend planting at least 25 Tulip bulbs together, which will cover 6sq ft. Not labeled. Late bloom.
Late-blooming Lily-flowered Tulips have very graceful and elegant blossoms with pointed, reflexed petals. Excellent for bedding and as cut flowers.
In April and May, nothing in the garden comes close to the range of colors and forms that Tulips can provide, from passionate reds, glowing oranges, deepest purples, and sunny yellows to charming pastels plus pure white. Why not have a glorious supply of fresh flowers close at hand in your own garden? Plant these bold shades in splashes in the perennial border or near an entrance, or fill a prominent bed or formal parterre. Here's an opportunity to have some fun.
