Product Description

Tulipa urumiensis, or 'Tarda', produces an abundance of canary yellow, fragrant flowers with bright white, pointed tips – giving a cheerful 'egg yolk' appearance, set amid glossy, bright-green leaves.

Easy to grow and with short, sturdy stems of up to 15cm, this is a perfect choice for rock and gravel gardens and containers; it is equally happy in beds and borders – or even for populating grassy areas. A favourite for cut flowers, they look stunning in a vase.

Each clump has up to 6 star-shaped, blooms. With its pointed petals and open-cupped demeanour, the 'Tarda' variety is a more natural-looking tulip than its hybrid cousins.

An enduring favourite, this easy-to-grow ancient variety was first cultivated in the late 16th century.

Supplied as a pack of 40 bulbs for autumn planting, these fully hardy tulips are best planted in a sunny or lightly shaded position, in rich, well-drained soil. Plant with other spring-flowering bulbs, perennials or shrubs to add a cheerful highlight to any colour scheme.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • If planted in the ground, they will spread to form good-sized clumps that don't need lifting.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

 

Care Guide

  • Plant in the autumn, 10-15cm deep, 10-15cm apart, in fertile, well-drained soil, in full sun to light shade.
  • Keep well-watered through the growing season.
  • Remove the flower heads once they have faded (although the flowers produce attractive seed heads if left untrimmed) and apply a weekly fertiliser for best results next season.
  • Once the foliage has begun to die back, dig up the bulbs for storing, unless naturalising in the ground. Clean the soil from the bulbs and discard any that appear damaged or diseased. Allow to dry thoroughly, then store at 18-20°C (65-68°F), in a dark, well-ventilated place for replanting in the autumn.
