  • Tulips are the indispensable blooms of the spring garden, as they bring it to life! They are unique in the range of size, shape, and bold color found in almost every color spectrum, that only tulips provide. Tulips are suitable for a wide range of plantings, are excellent in the rock garden, in formal beds, as elegant cut flowers, and for containers. They can be used in nearly any garden design scheme. Flowers are upward facing, with linear to lance-shaped green leaves on the stem. Tulip descriptions can become quite technical, as they are grouped into 15 different divisions, describing the petals, stamens, and leaves in detail.

    What makes this mixture so unique is the bulb size. We use giant sized, Mammoth, 14/+ bulbs - a size normally not commercially available due to the length of time it takes to grow them and the small supply available each season. Plus, only certain varieties will grow to this size. This mixture is made up of several varieties, and they come in brilliantly colored blooms. These tulips are tall, traditionally shaped, and highly prized by gardeners everywhere for their strong stems and huge flowers. Bigger bulbs means bigger blooms. The circumference measurements could come in 11/12cm, 12/14cm, and 14/16cm sizes.

    Growing Instructions:
    • To ensure optimal results, allow adequate space and sunlight, plant at the appropriate depth, and feed with a well balanced fertilizer.
    • Remove the flowers as soon as they go, but allow the leaves to yellow before removing.
    • Best planted in late fall.
    • Some gardeners treat tulips as annuals.
    • For an informal look, plant in groups in natural swathes or bouquets.

    • Recommended USDA zones 3-8
    • If grown in USDA zones 8-10, refrigerate the bulbs for no less than eight weeks.
    • In the garden, plant them before frost, but not as early as in the northern part of the country.
    • Planting them in a lightly shaded area will keep them cool and prolong blooming.

    • While every effort has been made to describe these plants accurately, please keep in mind that height, bloom time, and color may differ in various climates. The description of these plants has been written based on numerous outside resources.
    • Order early as we expect this variety to sell out; to assure freshness stock quantities are limited and are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
    • No other type of horticultural plant product gives you quite the range, color, variety, and versatility than flower bulbs. Generally speaking, the best predictor for gardening success is bulb size. Almost always, the larger the initial bulb size planted, the larger and stronger the plants will be, producing more flowers. Larger bulbs withstand adversity (disease, drought, too little or too much moisture, adverse temperatures, packing conditions and storage) so much better than the smaller ones. The first year-end result will be noticeable to anyone. At Van Zyverden, we strive to ensure your success by offering you the size you need at an affordable price.
