Single Late Tulips
As the name implies, these varieties are latr season bloomers available in a wide selection of colors and designs. The Single Late grouping includes the French tulip types which are some of the tallest varieties and some blooms are oval or egg like in shape. Additionally, this grouping includes some of the most popular tulips of all time. The inclusion of Single Late tulips is a perfect way to extend the blooming color in your garden and bring the spring season to an eventual end.
Originating in the foothills of Central Europe, tulips were brought to Western Europe in the 16th century and soon became synonymous with the Dutch culture and one of the world's most popular flowers. Tulips look best when grouped into larger sized garden plantings or pots and containers – although they also present a spectacular display when blooming in our enormous Skagit Valley fields!
Tulip bulbs should be planted during the fall months so that they can flower in the spring. Bloom dates will mostly depend upon the local climate, but exposure to sun and water will also influence timing. These flowers do not require extensive sunlight and will bloom when planted in fully shaded areas. Tulips will typically produce a single flower per bulb, but some varieties will have multiple blooms. Great as a garden flower or cut and placed in a vase, tulips are known to be a declaration of love!
