Single Early tulips get a head start on the spring and bring vibrant colors to any garden. These tulips grow shorter stems and produce mid sized flowers which allow them to hold up to the elements quite well. Their height and size also makes them a popular choice for border varieties with taller and later blooming tulips planted behind them. At RoozenGaarde we will often combine these varieties with muscari to make a strong and spectacular design with contrasting colors. Single Early tulips are an excellent choice for 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!
