Species Tulip turkestanica

Tulipa turkestanica

Elegant starbursts in silvery grey, ivory, and gold.

Blooms early spring

An early spring heirloom dating back to the 1800s, this petite, multi-flowering, naturalizing species tulip brings elegance to walkways and rock gardens. Ruffled blue-green foliage and silvery, dove-grey outer petals contrast beautifully with the ivory and golden-yellow centers of these star-shaped blooms. Each stem will bear 3-5 beautiful small blossoms! Highly attractive to bees, the plants reach 8” tall and do best in full to partial sun.

Tulips do best in full sun in northern areas, but will tolerate light shade in hotter areas. They require a well-drained soil, with an ideal pH of 6.0 to 6.5. Water in well after planting, beyond that normal rainfall should be sufficient.  Tulip bulbs should be kept cool until ready to plant; and planted in fall at least a month before the ground freezes. Follow the recommended planting depth per variety.
