Add vibrant dashes of colour to your landscape with enchanting Monsella Tulips. These Dutch-sourced tulips feature a wealth of bright canary yellow petals. As they open their layers of petals into a flared trumpet shape, they reveal fiery streaks and licks of vivid red that contrast exuberantly with the sunny petal colour. These bowl shaped blooms closely resemble a peony or waterlily in shape and look remarkable in mid spring gardens.
These tulips (Tulipa double early 'Monsella') do well in climate hardiness zones 3 to 8 and require full or partial sun. Plant the tulips in the fall to enjoy the lively blooms in mid spring. These perennial spring flower bulbs require well-drained soil, but they will also tolerate clay, loamy and sandy soil. For the best results, plant the multi-coloured tulips 6 inches deep and approximately 3 to 6 inches apart.
Increase your curb appeal by planting your Monsella tulips along walkways, paths and borders, where they'll issue a clarion call for attention. Combine these tulips in flower beds with cosmos, peonies, hostas and coneflowers for a creative and dazzling arrangement. This type of magnificent Dutch tulip is wonderful for forcing indoors. Add it to your home as a seasonal houseplant or as cut flowers. Create a stunning spring garden with the impressive Monsella tulip.
