For each offer ordered, get 10Add Monte Orange Tulip bulbs to your garden in the off-season, and watch the colours erupt in mid spring. These tulips bears twice the amount of blooms as other varieties, so your garden becomes a sea of lush orange colour. The bowl-shaped Monte Orange tulip adds a distinctive touch to your outdoor space.
Start by planting the Dutch tulip bulbs at least 6 inches deep, and 3 to 6 inches apart in a section of sunny or semi-shaded sandy, clay or loamy soil. The area should be well-drained, because you'll need to water tulipa double thoroughly during the fall, winter and summer to help ensure superior results in the spring. These perennials do well in hardiness zones 3 to 8. Once the flowers bloom, they'll more resemble peonies than tulips.
Because of their bold colour, these flowers are excellent garden borders or accents for a privacy fence. Plant them around soft-coloured trilliums and pansies, but be sure and give them plenty of room so they do not dominate the nearby flowers. Monte Orange tulips are very fragrant flowers that fill your garden with a soft, sweet aroma. The waxy tulipa double also makes outstanding cut flowers. Plant enough to share with family and friends.
