Tulips are the indispensable blooms of the spring garden, as they bring it to life! They are unique in range of size, shape and bold color found in almost every color spectrum, that only tulips provide. Tulips are good for a wide range of plantings, are excellent in the rock garden, in formal beds, as elegant cut flowers, and for containers. They can be used in nearly any garden design scheme. Flowers are upward facing, with linear to lance shaped green leaves on the stem. Tulip descriptions can become quite technical, as they are grouped into 15 different divisions, describing the petals, stamens, and leaves in detail. Let's just enjoy them for what they are - an incredible source of inexpensive color for the garden. Plant several different varieties of tulips throughout the garden to extend the blooming time. Fun Fact: It typically takes about six years to grow a tulip from seed to flower.
Parrott tulips are so called for their heavily frilled and scalloped, feathery-edged blooms, which make them truly unique. Very famous almost-black tulip variety, late blooming, and a heirloom dating back to 1937.
