KEIZERSKROON, 1750

An affordable 18th-century antique, “Emperor’s Crown” is still “magnificent for any purpose,” as C.S. Allen wrote in his 1893 best-seller, Bulbs and Tuberous Rooted Plants. Counterfeits are rife today, but our bulbs are the real deal. You’ll even see them blooming at Mount Vernon! Single Early, 13”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

TU-16 5/$9.50 10/$18 25/$41 50/$76 100/$141 SOLD OUT

KINGSBLOOD, 1952

Red is the most traditional, iconic color in tulips, and ‘Kingsblood’ is one of the 20th century’s finest, most enduring reds. Tall, late-blooming, and stately, it’s drop-dead gorgeous interplanted with ‘Greuze’, or sprinkle a few among pastel tulips to add a bit of visual zest, like the maraschino cherries in the fruit cocktail your grandmother used to serve. Single Late, 22-24”, 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-962 5/$6.50 10/$12.50 25/$28 50/$52 100/$96 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/$9.50 10/$18 25/$41 50/$76 100/$141 SOLD OUT

MARJOLETTII, 1894Rarest

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.

TU-29 5/$12.50 10/$23.50 25/$54 50/$100 100/$185 SOLD OUT

MAUREEN, 1950New

With its classic 1950s name, this classic 1950s tulip is still “unsurpassed even after all these years,” writes Richard Wilford in his 2015 Plant Lover’s Guide to Tulips. An RHS AGM-winner, it’s wonderfully strong-growing and holds its big, luminous flowers on tall sturdy stems. Single Late, 26-28”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

TU-967 5/$9 10/$17 25/$39 50/$72 100/$133 250/$297 SOLD OUT

ORANGE KING, 1903Rarest

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 10/$52 25/$117 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/$10.50 10/$20 25/$45 50/$84 100/$156 SOLD OUT

PRINSES IRENE, 1949

Irene’s warm, strong fragrance and unusual coloring – melon-orange flamed with subtle bronze-purple – make it one of the most distinctive tulips of the 1900s. It’s a favorite at Holland’s glorious Keukenhof gardens and easy to force indoors where you can enjoy its heavenly scent up close. Triumph, 14”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. See our other unusually fragrant tulips. Chart, care, and learn more. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.

TU-39 5/$8.50 10/$16 25/$36.50 50/$68 100/$126 SOLD OUT

QUEEN OF NIGHT, 1940New

Enormously popular ever since its debut in 1940, this “satiny maroon-black” tulip (Anna Pavord) is vigorous and long-lasting in the garden. And it’s versatile, writes Jane Eastoe in her 2019 Tulips: Beautiful Varieties for Home and Garden – “the perfect foil for red, rusty orange, apricot, and copper tulips” as well as “very pretty with soft pink, violet, and white.” Single Late, 24”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

TU-966 5/$7.50 10/$14.25 25/$32.50 50/$60 100/$111 250/$248 SOLD OUT

ROCOCO, 1942

When we posted this photo of ‘Rococo’ on Facebook and asked if we should offer it, the response was an overwhelming “YES!” A sport of the great ‘Couleur Cardinal’, it’s “one of the craziest” of the “mad, magnificent” parrots, says bulb-maven Anna Pavord, with sumptuous, writhing petals of red highlighted with purple, yellow, and green. Shorter and earlier than most parrots, 14-16”, mid-season, 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-906 5/$9 10/$17 25/$39 50/$72 100/$133 SOLD OUT
