All bulbs for fall 2018 are SOLD OUT. Thanks for a great season!

MABEL, 1856        Rarest
With bold flames and feathers of cherry-red on white, this striking English florists’ tulip was bred by a Lancashire weaver over 150 years ago. But who was Mabel? Wife? Daughter? Or maybe a favorite barmaid at one of the pubs where the tulip societies held their shows back then? True broken tulip, multiplies well, late blooming, 18”, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from the Hortus Bulborum. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
TU-75 1/$7 3/$19 SOLD OUT
MADRAS, 1913        Rarest
One of the break-out stars from our former Brown Sugar sampler, this “handsome Old Dutch Tulip,” to quote the Barr and Sons catalog of 1931, is “golden-bronze, the outer petals being flushed plum” – and it’s fragrant. Although it was officially introduced in 1913, Wister says it was listed by Krelage as far back as 1870. Dutch Breeder/Single Late, 22-26”, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from the Hortus Bulborum. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
TU-931 1/$10 3/$27.50 5/$43 SOLD OUT
MARIETTE, 1942        
The graceful, vase-like shape of lily-flowered tulips like ‘Mariette’ evokes that of the earliest tulips to reach the West from Turkey in the 1500s. This multiple award-winner is a radiant rose-pink, deeper in the center of the petals and shading to silvery pink at the edges. Lily-flowered, late, 20-24”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
TU-920 5/$5.70 10/$10.80 25/$24.60 50/$45.60 100/$84.60 SOLD OUT
MARJOLETTII, 1894        Rarest & It’s Back!
This wildflowery gem offers small, vase-shaped blooms of pale lemon to cream blushed with rose on graceful, wiry stems. A “neo-tulip” discovered growing wild in France in 1894, it is now considered most likely to be a much older garden “escape.” Cheap counterfeits are common, so for the real thing, come to us! 14”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

MIRELLA, 1953        Rarest
Winner of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, this mid-century classic has “buff rose” petals enlivened by silvery pink petal edges and “a broad flame of raspberry” (Killingback, Tulips). After decades of popularity, it’s getting harder and harder to find – so we’ve added it to our ark. Triumph, 22-24”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

TU-946 5/$10 10/$19 25/$43 50/$80 100/$148 SOLD OUT
MR. VAN DER HOEF, 1911        Rarest
Although double tulips were most popular in Victorian gardens, this later introduction was lauded in catalogs through the 1930s as “extra good,” “one of the finest,” and “exquisite.” Its fragrant, pure yellow, overstuffed flowers light up the garden like big bowls of sunshine. Last offered in 2012, Double Early, 10-12”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from the Hortus Bulborum. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
TU-17 1/$7.50 3/$20.50 5/$32.50 SOLD OUT
OLD TIMES, 1905        Rarest
This uniquely colored, brown-inflected tulip has “a real ‘old-timey’ look to its garnet and primrose flowers,” as J. Horace McFarland wrote in 1938. Its shape is wonderfully old-fashioned, too, with lancet-pointed petals that curl back gracefully as they open in the sun. One of the so-called Cottage tulips, it was re-discovered by the Rev. Joseph Jacobs “in an old garden in Hanmer in 1905.” Cottage/Single Late, 18-22”, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from the Hortus Bulborum. See our other brown tulips. Chart and care.

TU-936 1/$4.50 3/$12.30 5/$19.50 10/$36 SOLD OUT
ORANGE KING, 1903        Rarest & It’s Back!
The great Gertrude Jekyll planted this very rare, sunset-colored tulip in her iconic early 20th-century perennial borders. A multiple award-winner, it remained popular well into the 1940s when the de Jager catalog praised it as “a beautiful orange-scarlet tinged old rose, sweet-scented, a grand tulip.” Cottage/Single Late, 18-20”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from the Hortus Bulborum. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
TU-917 1/$6 3/$18 5/$28 SOLD OUT
PEACH BLOSSOM, 1890        
We sell tons of this old tulip every year, even though doubles have been woefully out of fashion for decades now – a testament to its great beauty. It’s a frothy extravaganza of white and pink (not peach), like a lacy, Victorian valentine. If you’ve never grown double tulips, this is the one to start with – and what are you waiting for? Double Early, 10-12”, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. See our other unusually fragrant tulips. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
TU-19 5/$9.45 10/$18 25/$40.50 SOLD OUT
PHILIPPE DE COMINES, 1891        Rarest
“Dark polished mahogany,” is how Peter Henderson described this tall, late tulip in 1929, but it always reminds us of dark sweet cherries. Despite its dramatic looks, ‘Philippe’ had vanished from American gardens until we reintroduced it in 1998. The great ‘Black Parrot’ is its ruffled sport (mutation). Single Late/Darwin, 20-24”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
TU-30 3/$8.08 5/$12.75 SOLD OUT
