Tulipa - Tulips

A symbol of spring, tulips are the most popular bulbs and most gardeners reserve them a spot in the garden or in containers. There are currently over 3,000 registered varieties, which are divided into fifteen groups, mostly based on the flower type, size and blooming period of the tulip. Some Tulips are early season bloomers (Single and Double Early Tulips), others are mid-season bloomers (Triumph and Darwin Hybrid tulips) or late season tulips (Single and double Late Tulips, Fringed Tulips, Parrot Tulips, Viridiflora Tulips). If you love Tulips and want to have a great spring garden that blooms from early season through late, select Tulip bulbs that bloom across all three spring seasons. Exactly when the flowers bloom will depend on nature and the spring conditions in your area that year, but you should have a terrific garden that satisfies for months on end.

Botanical Tulips

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.

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

Often long-lived, they deserve more attention!

Fosteriana Tulips

Tulipa fosteriana is a wild species found in the mountainous areas of Central Asia. Although no longer being cultivated, numerous beautiful cultivars developed from it are still marketed. They differ from one another in height, but all have solitary, bowl-shaped flowers, 5 in. wide (12 cm), with a slender shape and large, sometimes striped, leaves. These tulips generally naturalize easily and come back year after year in the garden. They are well-suited to mixed borders and create impressive bedding displays. Bloom in early-mid spring.

Fringed Tulips

Quite elegant looking, easy to grow and weather resistant. More and more people are becoming interested in Fringed Tulips which enjoy all finely incised petals

Greigii Tulips

Low growing tulips with single bowl-shaped flowers in early to mid spring atop beautifully mottled leaves. Combined with their stunning spotted and striped leaves, these flower colors create an unforgettable visual impact.

Kaufmanniana Tulips

Their flowers open into colorful stars and their grayish leaves are often mottled

Lily-Flowered Tulips

Incredibly elegant, graceful and beautiful! What makes Lily-Flowered Tulips different from other tulip varieties are their slender flowers with often pointed, recurving petals.

Parrot Tulips

The flowers are green as buds, and as they grow it may seem as if the tulips will remain entirely green forever. But as the flower matures and opens, resembling a parrot's plumage, the brilliant colors are revealed. This is when their black, star-shaped center and their bright yellow stamens become apparent.
