Gardeners' Notes:


On Apr 10, 2015, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

A dark maroon that isn't quite black, the color doesn't stand out in the garden, and is best used to contrast with other single late tulips. Height is more like 18-20".

These are lovely tulips, but like the other single late tulips they do not naturalize or perennialize here (Boston Z6a).

Tulips require a dry summer rest, and we get too much summer rainfall here for most tulips to prosper. If you keep your summer irrigation to a minimum, they may come back a second season or even sometimes a third, though smaller each year.

All tulips are prime fodder for deer and other critters.
