Product Information

These are the earliest tulips to flower and appear from mid March. Short and stout the star-shaped flowers have pointed petals which open almost completely flat on sunny days. Some varieties have been cultivated to take advantage of this, so that the inside colour is sometimes dramatically different from the outside and often have a black or yellow heart. A fully-opened kaumanniana tulip looks more like a water lily than a tulip and this resemblance has earned the group the nick-name “The Water Lily Tulip”. As with other botanical tulips, the colours in this group are predominantly red, yellow and white or combinations of these colours and the leaves are often mottled or striped. Kaufmanniana tulips have short 6 or 7 inch stems and are therefore ideal for rockeries, exposed beds, patio planters and containers, or can be left to naturalise. Flowering in March makes them a unusual and colourful alternative to or companion for daffodils or other early-flowering plants. Very hardy, these tulips are a real herald of spring. Plant the bulbs in fertile, well-drained, soil, during autumn. Performs best in full sun but will tolerate partial shade. Remove the flowers as they fade to prevent plants setting seed but allow foliage to yellow and wither for approx. 6 weeks before removing it.
