The many nice characteristics of Botanical tulips In early spring, when the garden, terrace or balcony has little to offer in the way of visual interest, Botanical tulips brighten things up straightaway. These are real early birds: they bloom before any other tulips. They catch the eye not only because of their extra early flowering but also because of their inflorescence and cheery range of colors. In addition, the graceful way the flowers open and their pretty foliage make them attractive before, during and after flowering. In other words, Botanical tulips are simply bursting with nice characteristics. Just let them naturalize Many Botanical tulips can simply be left to naturalize. This means that they don't have to be lifted from the ground every year. If you would rather take them out, however, wait until June when the foliage will have withered. Nice and sunny Botanical tulips prefer a sunny spot. In October/November, plant them with their noses pointing upward and cover with 2,5 to 3 Inches of soil.
In addition to the large cultivated tulips, there are also what are known as botanical tulips. These tulips are particularly suitable for garden planting since they can remain undisturbed in the soil after flowering and will emerge again next year! Botanical tulips are also referred to as âwild tulips or âdwarf tulips due to their low height. Their height is one of the factors that makes them perfect for planting in a flower bed as well as in rock gardens and special little spots. With so many different varieties to choose from, they can create a real riot of color in the garden or even in flower containers. Over the years, botanical tulip varieties have often been awarded the âflower bulb of the year title. This says a lot about their rising popularity! The sizes of these bulbs are 6 to 10 cm. smaller than most tulip bulbs but their numbers will easily increase year after year. Botanical tulips are not just exceptionally beautiful flowers in their own right but can also be combined with other spring-blooming flowers. These stunning tulips should be planted in the autumn. Choose a sunny spot for them, and you will be enjoying their profusion of flowers from April to June. You can also leave them undisturbed and they will pop up again the following year for another wonderful display.
