A Fascinating Spring Border Idea with Tulip 'Orange Emperor' Tulip 'Attila'

Spring Combination Ideas, Bulb Combinations, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Spring Borders


Isn't this spring border fascinating? To recreate the same look in your early-mid spring garden, you will need to combine 3 tulip varieties: 'Attila', 'Orange Emperor' and 'Varinas'.

Since Tulip 'Varinas' is extremely hard to find, we suggest (as a lovely substitute) award-winning Tulip 'Apricot Beauty', a sweetly scented, early blooming Single Early Tulip, with soft apricot flowers beautifully reverberating in the sunlight. 

A planting idea that is ideal for beds and borders, edging or containers. Enjoy!
