Appearing almost sharp to the touch, Fringed tulips are amongst the most unique varieties available – this grouping will surely bring forth the curiosity of those passing by. Relatively new to the lineup of world tulips, these varieties are increasing in popularity and tend to have a fairly long bloom life. The shorter types are good choices for forcing and pots, while all of the types add a nice bit of later season color to flower beds. Since the double + fringed blooms in this grouping will hold water between the petals and inside the flower, gardeners should look to plant them in protected or covered areas.
Originating in the foothills of Central Europe, tulips were brought to Western Europe in the 16th century and soon became synonymous with the Dutch culture and one of the world's most popular flowers. Tulips look best when grouped into larger sized garden plantings or pots and containers – although they also present a spectacular display when blooming in our enormous Skagit Valley fields!
Tulip bulbs should be planted during the fall months so that they can flower in the spring. Bloom dates will mostly depend upon the local climate, but exposure to sun and water will also influence timing. These flowers do not require extensive sunlight and will bloom when planted in fully shaded areas. Tulips will typically produce a single flower per bulb, but some varieties will have multiple blooms. Great as a garden flower or cut and placed in a vase, tulips are known to be a declaration of love!
