After testing for a score of years in Holland and America, a series of Darwin Hybrid Tulips has proved to provide up to 5 years (sometimes more) of splendid bloom, with bud counts actually increasing for the first 3 years. Though they will never have the permanence of Daffodils, this group far surpasses the performing life of Tulips as we knew it. Our Perennial Tulips are not only for the garden; they can be naturalized, which is hard for gardeners to believe.
This collection consists of 12 bulbs of each of the 6 perennial varieties we offer: Pink, Red, Ivory, Yellow, Orange, and Red & Yellow Tulips. Each variety is labeled. These outstanding Tulips are economical, colorful, and durable, and an excellent means of improving the spring show in a border or launching your cutting garden into a May orbit. 72 bulbs.
We ship extra-large bulbs that will bloom magnificently next spring and for many to come, provided they receive the basics of good culture: plant deeply; feed with a balanced fertilizer in fall and then again in early spring; remove the flowers as soon as they go by; and avoid watering them in summer. Your reward will be more than ample.
