Darwin tulips are the classics of the tulip world with a shape everyone associates with these beautiful spring flowers. These Apeldoorn Elite Tulips will provide a WOW factor along with the classic shape tulip lovers adore. Yellow Tulips with orange accented petals with a thick edge of deep golden yellow are borne on strong, sturdy stems. With their delicate fragrance with just a hint of vanilla, you'll want to plant them close to an entrance way to welcome guests. These long-lasting flowers resist fading, and with their strong, sturdy stems are perfect in beds, borders, rock gardens, and containers. They're delightful additions to cut flower arrangements and look great when several are tied together and placed in clear glass containers.
Growing Instructions: Plant tulips outdoors in the fall about 6-8 weeks before the first hard frost. Select a spot in the garden that receives full or afternoon sun and where the soil drains well. Loosen the soil and plant the bulbs, pointy end up, approximately 6-8" deep and 5" apart. Tamp down the soil and water well after planting. Leave the foliage intact and cut only the stems to use as cut flowers. Foliage should be left to die back naturally as it provides the nutrients the bulbs will need to grow and flower the following year. Planting tip: For a more natural look, plant tulips in clusters rather than in straight lines. Remember that tulips do not like excessive moisture and should not be planted where they are watered by irrigation systems.
