Botanical tulips open early, are close to the ground, and flower beautifully

Tulip Species, Rock Garden Tulips, Wild Tulips


Botanical tulips have a natural look

They stay nice and close to the ground, and they seem to be in flower as soon as they emerge from the soil. Their bright colors make them real eye-catchers in early spring. The striped leaves of many varieties make these even more appealing. And another important thing: these ‘wild’ tulips won’t be bothered by wind and weather.

Tulip Turkestanica

The many nice characteristics of Botanical tulips

In early spring, when the garden, terrace or balcony has little to offer in the way of visual interest, Botanical tulips brighten things up straight away. These are real early birds: they bloom before any other tulips. They catch the eye not only because of their extra early flowering but also because of their inflorescence and cheery range of colors. In addition, the graceful way the flowers open and their pretty foliage make them attractive before, during and after flowering. In other words, Botanical tulips are simply bursting with nice characteristics.

Tulip clusiana 'Lady Jane'

Many Botanical tulips such as T. kaufmanniana, T. turkestanica, T. sylvestris, T. batalinii and T. pulchella can simply be left to naturalize. This means that they don’t have to be lifted from the ground every year. If you would rather take them out, however, wait until June when the foliage will have withered.

Tulip 'Pinocchio'

Nice and sunny

Botanical tulips prefer a sunny spot. In October/November, plant them with their ‘noses’ pointing upward and cover with 3 inches of soil (8 cm). Purchasing them won’t cost you much since their average price is fairly low.

Pretty varieties

Although there are too many to list them all, they include Tulipa kaufmanniana ‘Berlioz’ (a very unique mini tulip), T. fosteriana ‘Spring Pearl’ (a very pretty plant with red and white flowers), T. greigii ‘Zampa’ (a scented tulip), T. fosteriana ‘Purissima’ (a tulip with Hosta-like leaves), T. greigii ‘Lovely Surprise’ (a very sturdy tulip) and T. greigii ‘Annie Salomons’ (silvery leaves with red flowers).
