Brighten your garden or patio with delightful, dazzling Firespray Tulips. These cheery, unique tulips bloom in early to mid spring, a spray of blazing red blooms bursting from each sturdy stem. They bring life and colour to an area in a way few other flowers can match.
Plant these perennial tulip bulbs in the fall, 6 inches deep and 3 to 6 inches apart in well-drained clay, loamy or sandy soil. Sourced from Holland, Firespray tulips (Tulipa praestans) thrive in zones 3 to 8. They do well in full sun to partial shade, blooming more abundantly in shadier areas. They grow to a height of 6 to 8 inches, with up to five 2 1/2- inch fiery red blooms on each stem.
These vibrant, lightly-scented flowers are absolutely stunning in window boxes, pots and planters. They make a striking appearance at or near the front of a flower bed, and their vivid red blooms are positively breathtaking in borders. Because of their preference for partial shade, these lovely tulips are ideal for placement beneath trees, on the shaded side of walls or structures, or in containers on decks or patios. Choose Firespray tulips to light up your patio or garden with a brilliant burst of scarlet.
