Care Tips Don’t plant tulips until the cold weather has set in - this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. Dip the bulbs in Bulb Starter when planting and mulch with manure. Leave the browning foliage on your tulips until every leaf has died right down; this allows the bulb to store more food.
Flowering April - May
Vase Life Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper and allow to drink with the stems held vertical for 8 hours. This helps keep the stems straight.

Despite your write-up saying "unscented" I can verify that this tulip has a fabulous scent. It is beautiful when closed, and when it opens up in the sun, there is lots more yellow and apricot. A real treat and one that I will grow again next year. Used as part of a wedding bouquet.
