Turn up the heat with the vibrant colours of the Firespray Tulip Mixture. This vibrant blend of fiery blooms shows itself to the world in early to mid spring, warming those still chilly days. This collection features Tulipa praestans, a low-growing tulip variety known for producing multiple blooms per bulb. The goblet-shaped flowers also sport distinctly pointed edges, a rarity in the tulip world. The resulting array of beautiful yellow, red and orange blooms pop out at every angle.
Plant your perennial tulips bulbs in the fall, prior to the first frost, for gorgeous spring colour. The warm-blooded Firespray tulip mixture prefers full to partial sun. Place the bulbs 6 inches deep and 3 to 6 inches apart in an area with good drainage in clay, loamy or sandy soil. Excellent for naturalizing, these 8- to 10-inch tall perennials are hardy in zones 3 through 8 and will return each spring in greater numbers.
Offering a rich, vibrant colour palette and unique petals, Tulipa praestans add a touch of festivity whether they're standing alone or planted beside others. Line your walkways, paths and road edges with this mixture for a fiery display or intersperse them among daffodils and standard tulips for a riot of spring colour. Say goodbye to winter's chill with the Firespray tulip mixture.
