A unique addition to any garden. These tulips are defined by their variegated foliage and will have a shorter steam which leads upward to a big bloom! The leaves of each tulip are impressively striped with purplish streaks while the blooms tend to be rather large in proportion to the rest of the plant – and extremely vibrant as well. As an added bonus, the variegated foliage colors early in the season providing a little extra flair to the mostly green flower beds of late winter/early spring. Greigii tulips are popular choices for rock garden plantings and the borders of flower beds and look absolutely outstanding when planted in pots and containers.
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!
