This tulip is a true gem! The 'Merry Go Round' Bunch Flowering Tulip blooms with a splendid red-purple color, a somewhat rare hue in the spring garden. These guys produce 3 to 5 flowers per stem, which makes them perfect for filling in the landscape or cutting for fresh floral arrangements!

  • Tulips perform best in full sun to partial shade
  • Plant tulips when temperatures have cooled in your area in fall. Once your daytime temperatures are in the 60’s or lower consistently, this is a good time to plant your tulips.
  • Tulips require 12-16 weeks of consistent temperatures below 50 degrees in winter in order to produce a flower bud; tulips are best suited to cold climates.
  • Adequate drainage is essential to the health of your tulips. Amend your soil with top soil and organic matter such as compost, manure, leaf mold or peat moss prior to planting. After you have amended your soil, it should be light and easy to work with.
  • Fertilize at planting with Hi Yield Bulb Food or for organic gardening use Bulb-Tone. Apply fertilizer at least 3” below the bottom of the bulbs so that the roots will get the most benefit from the fertilizer.
  • Tulips should be planted at least 6-8” deep with the pointed side of the tulip facing towards the sky. Dig the planting hole 12” deep so you can add fertilizer to the bottom of the hole. After adding fertilizer back fill with 3-4” of soil, plant your bulbs, then back fill with remaining soil.
  • Space tulips 4-6” apart when planting individual bulbs. For mass planting and brilliant bursts of color in the garden, plant the bulbs 2-3” apart in bouquet planting groups, trenches and garden beds.
  • Immediately after planting, water the tulip planting area. This helps to eliminate air pockets in the soil. After the initial planting, it is not necessary to provide any supplemental water to the area. In spring once the tulips have emerged you may water as necessary, although spring rains often make providing additional water unnecessary.
  • Apply a layer a 2” layer of mulch in late fall.

Not what I was expecting but really pretty! More of a coral pink opening up to reveal a bright yellow center. They were only about 6 inches tall, much shorter than anticipated. I only got one stem/bloom per bulb, but the blooms were vibrant and lasted a long time. Bloomed in mid April in zone 6.

Stumbled upon these by accident last yr. Love the multiple flowering look. Can't wait to see these bloom. The bunching look looks very pretty in a mass planting.

Great quality and fast delivery
