Tulip Blushing Apeldoorn – is so called because it changes colour from a bright yellow with a red trim to a blushed orange. It is a bright tulip that is fascinating to watch on a daily basis. As with all Darwin Hybrid tulips the head of the flower is enormous, twice as large as any supermarket cut flower. Tulip Blushing Apeldoorn will flower in late March for 2-3 weeks.
Darwin Hybrid tulips are very special, blended from Early Emperor tulips and Single Late tulips. They have a simple, single cup shaped flower often with a black star at the bottom. The stems are very long but manage to keep the flower upright, at 60cm tall.
Plant Tulip Blushing Apeldoorn in October if possible, but you can plant as late as January. You don’t need to prepare Tulip bulbs in any way. Plant them 15cm deep and around 10-15cm apart, in well-draining soil. If you want to get the best from them, plant them in a sunny position, to see them open and close as the light changes, or else plant them in semi-shade where they are equally happy. Remove the petals once the flower has finished.
Try planting these tulip bulbs as a bedding flower, or in a cutting bed so you can enjoy them indoors too.
Tulip bulbs can cause problems if left in the soil over a prolonged period of time, they can start to rot, so we recommend lifting them in summer. If you leave the stems in, they should be easy to find. Tulip bulbs produce a lot of roots and develop bulblets from the base of the old bulbs, which can make them fiddly to get out.

What is a Darwin Hybrid Tulip?
Darwin hybrid tulips are a cross between single late and early emperor tulips, they typically bloom between mid-April and mid-May.
Darwin hybrid tulips are reliable performers that are tolerant of changeable spring weather. They produce big, showy flowers of the classic tulip shape in a rainbow range of rich colours from white through yellow, orange, red and pink. They open wide in the spring sun, and will close again in the evening or during chilly showers.
Darwin hybrid tulips are tall, bold flowers, perfect for anything from large displays to patio pots. The long, elegant stems also make them an excellent tulip for flower arranging.
