Shine some light on your spring garden with this colorful Perennial Tulip Collection. It is no secret that Tulips are the true showcase of any spring garden, and it is the type of tulip classified as ‘Darwin’ tulips that are the most prized of any. Darwins are the tulips grown by Botanical Gardens throughout the world. They create the most perfect tulips flowers in that classic egg shape with flowers that are about 50% larger than average tulips.
Each collection includes 5 bulbs each mixed together/unlabeled of these incredibly desired colors in Purple Parade Pride, Parade (red), Daydream (orange), and Pink Impression. Included are some of the most reliable perennial tulips around. Many tulip bulbs only create flowers well the first season, whereas these varieties will come back consistently each spring. Each bulb can produce 1-3 flowers the first year, so you can expect a multitude of that iconic egg-shaped tulip flower each spring with this collection.

Love seeing them grown in tight clusters of 8-10 bulbs per square foot to create the densest display of color in the garden. They're great when paired with other spring favorites like Allium, Iris, and Hyacinth.

Shipping and Handling Included
Water: Water your plants immediately after taking them out of the box. Give them enough water, so the soil appears damp, and water trickles out the bottom of the pot.
Plants look Dry, or Foliage appears Lackluster: Sometimes, plants may appear dried out and wilted after the voyage. Do not despair. The foliage may look lackluster when this happens, but the rootstock is still perfectly healthy and alive. To plump your plants back up, water them and wait 5 minutes and then water them again. This will generally rehydrate them. Keep these plants well-watered until you can replant them into larger containers or in the garden within the next week. If plants arrive dry, it is often because the roots have outgrown the small shipping pots and need more room to grow; roots tend to dry out quickly in small containers. Your plants are very much alive; when you transplant them into larger pots or the earth, they will start growing quickly! So, replant them as soon as possible. Remove any yellow or brown foliage. If a lot of the plant's foliage has yellowed, you may cut the foliage back to just above the soil line. This will give your plant a chance to restart, encouraging bushier, thicker growth.
Time to Plant! Your plants are now ready to be replanted. Follow the planting guide inside for detailed instructions on how to plant your new plants most effectively.
First Year Maintenance: For perennials, the first year (or sometimes two) will require additional maintenance. During the first season of growth, even if the plant is known to be drought-tolerant, it is very important to water your plants on a regular basis, meaning up to 3-4 times per week. When plants are in their infancy stage, they need to be watered by their caretaker until they’ve had a chance to build a strong enough root system to subsist on their own. If you are experiencing severe heat or drought-like conditions, or your plants appear consistently droopy, you may need to water your plants almost every day.
