A spectacular addition to the spring garden, Queen of Night Tulips live up to their name with their deep maroon colour. With a shade as close to black as we've seen in a tulip, their intense, rich hue has to be seen to be believed. These Dutch sourced beauties are hand selected for their saturated colour, hardiness and sturdy stems. The traditional cup shaped flowers bloom in late spring, adding their deep, seductive colour to your landscape.
Queen of the Night tulip bulbs are easy to grow. Plant them in the fall, before the first frost. Place the bulbs about 3 inches deep and about 3 to 4 inches apart in well drained clay, loamy or sandy soil. Tulips thrive in zones 3 to 8 and prefer full to partial sun. These exotic perennial beauties grow 28 to 30 inches tall and will return to deliver a brilliant show every spring.
Strong, sturdy stems keep these flowers perky even during stormy spring weather, making them a great choice for borders. Add them to your cutting garden for striking floral arrangements. To showcase their extraordinary colour, surround them with soft pastel blooms like geranium and liatris or contrast them against pure white and red tulips. Add drama to your landscape with the Queen of Night tulip.
