More Details

Tulipa humilis 'Odalisque' is pink with an outer brush of carmine.

Humilis varieties of tulip flower from mid-March through April, all small but spectacular, with goblet-shaped flowers. They are all easy to grow, excellent for pots and look ideal mixed with other mid-spring delicate bulbs such as anemones and the smaller fritillaries in a border.

Our tulip bulbs are the best and biggest we can find, from tried and trusted growers. Don't forget that tulips like to be planted late in October and November with the colder weather, and need a little watering if planted in pots.

Care Tips Don't plant tulip bulbs until the cold weather has set in – this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. Leave the browning foliage on your tulips until every leaf has died right down – this allows the bulb to store more food.
Flowering Early March - April
Vase Life Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper and soak for 8 hrs. This helps keep the stems straight.
