Light buttery yellow blooms stand on sturdy stems in the beginning of spring. Single Early Tulips are some of the first bulbs to bloom when spring arrives in your area. Plant with other single early tulips like White Prince, Purple Prince or Red Revival.

  • 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.

10 stars if I could, 10 points of light

  • Amazing color
  • healthiest bulbs
  • Absolutely none
Here is my advice; buy early, dig deep, plant early with bulb food and some blood/ bone meal (helps keep critters away) and sprinkle some old pungent spices you don't want around the top (throws the bunnies off). Then, sit back and wait.

All 10 of these beauties emerged, strong upright stems and the best butter yellow color you don't normally find in tulips. I have scoured many websites and never found anything like Sunny Prince, and for it to come with a plant/ bulb this healthy is a blessing. With all the corona stress going on, walking into the yard and looking at these, or peeking out the kitchen window at dusk and catching a glimpse of these is like catching 10 points of light, gently gleaming, like hope.

Great bulbs
