Tulip Varieties Explained
Single Early Tulips: Recognizable for their classic tulip shape, these early bloomers boast shorter, robust stems, making them wind-resistant. Perfect for containers, borders, and flower beds.
Single Late Tulips: Late in spring, you can still enjoy the classic tulip shape in various colors. Single late tulips have sturdy, long stems, ideal for cut flower arrangements.
Triumph Tulips: Sporting large cone-shaped flowers that transform into an oval shape upon opening, triumph tulips add vibrancy to any garden. Their strong stems make them suitable for both garden and floral arrangements.
Botanical Tulips: These diminutive tulips stay low with small flowers, making them distinct from their larger counterparts. They’re ideal for perennial flowering and naturalization, fitting well along borders or in pots.
Darwin-Hybrid Tulips: Known for their single-flowered, sturdy, and tall stems, these tulips feature large calyx-shaped flowers and bloom in mid-season. Many varieties can return in the following year under the right conditions.
Double Early Tulips (Peony Tulips): These early bloomers, known for their beautifully filled flowers, are best suited for the front of borders or pots due to their slightly shorter stems.
Double Late Tulips (Peony Tulips): With their well-filled flowers and long stems, these tulips serve as stunning focal points in your garden.
Fosteriana Tulips: Distinguished by their grey-green leaves, Fosteriana tulips offer a lovely contrast to their vibrant, large flowers. They tend to vary in height and can flourish as perennials.
Fringed Tulips: Identified by their charmingly jagged-edged flowers, often in contrasting colors, these tulips bloom in mid to late season and are perfect for cutting.
Double Fringed Tulips: The double fringed tulips, boasting double flowers with intricate jagged edges, add a striking touch to any garden and have an extended flowering period.
Parrot Tulips: These tulips are characterized by their fringed and twisted petals, creating a truly unique and captivating appearance. Blooming in late April to early May, they fully open their petals when basking in the sunlight. A standout favorite in this category is the black parrot tulip, and an interesting note is that most parrot tulips feature a hint of green in their petals.
