Esperanto Viridiflora ,Tulip Bulbs. FALL PLANTING!
A fantastic neat little tulip. China-rose petals with a deep flame of green along the midrib fading into red-brown, the leaves are tipped creamy white. Reaching a height of 30cm, its thick spears of variegated foliage are strikingly marked white at the edges. A celebrated addition to any garden and holder of a RHS Award of Garden Merit. Viridiflora Tulips are known for their impressive long flowering capability and as a relation to the single late class tend to flower throughout April and May . 11-12cm bulbs supplied.Plant bulbs in well dug soil about 8-10cm deep and approx 15cm apart. It is often beneficial to use a little bonemeal or super phosphate mixed in with the soil. Tulips delight during their growth in a sunny location. After the tulips have bloomed and when leaves fade and turn brown the bulbs can be lifted, dried, cleaned and stored in a cool place until planting time. Tulips should not be grown in the same soil for several years, so replace with fresh soil every other year.
