The very best perennial tulips.
The gardens at Great Dixter House have trialled many varieties of tulips over the years and listed varieties which were deemed the very best as everlasting tulips. Many tulips only perform for a couple of years in the home garden without expert attention that nurserymen can give them.
We offer 3 varities selected for their performance.
Tulip China Town - A pink and green flowered variety with green and cream variegated foliage. Flowering in early May.
Tulip Negrita - a richly violet - purple coloured tulip and dark purple veins in a classic tulip flower shape. Flowering Mid April.
Tulip Shirley - a colour changing tulip in ivory white edged with purple. As the flower ages the petals grraduallyt wash into a light lilac. Flowering Mid April.
Tulips grow in any soil in full sun or part shade and prefer sites away from strong winds.
Try planting underneath deciduous bushes where their flowers pop up through their stems for that extra bit of spring interest.
Plant 2 times the depth of the bulb in any reasonable soil. Excellent planted in groups of 5 bulbs per 50cm square. Remove spent flower heads and allow to die back naturallyu in summer.
