Christmas Orange tulip is a single early blooming tulip with glowing orange and bright apricot blooms. Warm up after a long winter with these bright and glowing early blooming tulips. Combines well with Purple Prince Single Early Tulip.

  • 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.

Pros:
  • beautiful
  • sturdy
  • long stems
Cons:
  • not as orange
I planted these 2 1/2 years ago, and they have all come up in spring 2 years in a row. They have a yellow streak in the middle of the outside of the petal, the inside of the flower is more of that pure orange color. I planted them on the east side of the house where they get some sun and some shade.

I haven't actually seen the flowers yet but the plants coming up are nice and healthy. I have received so many compliments from people walking by who are absolutely amazed by the color and health of the spring flower garden. I always tell them where I ordered my bulbs. HBF .... You will never be disappointed!
