GARDEN PARTY, 1944

This award-winning classic gets rosier and more vibrant every day, and its thick petals make it long-lasting in bloom, so you get more beauty from every bulb. It looks especially good mingled with whites and purples – a tip from English garden maven Rosemary Verey. Triumph, 16-18”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

GENERAAL DE WET, 1904

Richly fragrant and long-lived, ‘Generaal de Wet’ is a worthy scion of the legendary ‘Prince of Austria’. Although orange may not be traditional or expected in the spring garden, try a few bulbs of ‘De Wet’ and we think you’ll agree that its sunny, fresh, juicy tones look right at home there. Pair it with dark purple johnny-jump-ups outside and in a vase where you can enjoy its fragrance up close. Ahhhh! Single Early, 14”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland.

INSULINDE, 1914Rarest & Web-Only

Did you see this knockout in The New York Times? Like a sunrise in slow motion, it opens with baby-smooth, pale yellow petals feathered with rose, and then day by day it transforms itself into a big, ruffled flower of creamy white flamed with purple. You will be enchanted! True broken tulip, late-blooming, 16-18”, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from the Hortus Bulborum. Chart and care.

IVORY FLORADALE, 1965Web-Only & New

Opening from pale yellow buds, this elegant, mid-season beauty matures from a warm, creamy ivory to almost pure white. If you look closely you’ll often see minute touches of pink and red, botanical beauty marks inherited from its deep red parent, ‘Floradale’. Darwin Hybrid, 20-24”, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Holland. Chart and care.

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.

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.

LAC VAN RIJN, 1620Rarest & Web-Only

A very rare survivor from the days of Tulipomania in the 1630s, this crown-shaped tulip of burgundy and ivory was once sold for enormous sums. Today it may still seem expensive – but what else can you own from 1620 that costs so little? And with good care, it multiplies! Pronounced “Lock von Rhine,” Single Early, 14”, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from the Hortus Bulborum. Chart and care.

MABEL, 1856Rarest & Web-Only

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.

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.

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.
