More Information

Tulip Crème Flag is a subtle tulip flower, cream with mottle specks of pink. Part of the triumph tulip group, a mid season flowering bulb. A single flower with a classic waisted shape on a stem of 40-45cm. Flowers with a blend of colours look great when paired with matching colours. For example you could pair this with a pink triumph tulip like  Don Quichotte to break up the solid colours. Equally, the pink will highlight the colouring in Tulip Crème Flag.

What are Triumph Tulips?

Triumph tulips are the largest group of tulip varieties, providing an assortment of colors in mid-late spring. The blooms are single and of the classic tulip cup shape. They grow between 10 – 24 inches tall (25 – 60cm) on sturdy stems.

How to plant tulip bulbs

Plant tulip bulbs in autumn, when the soil has cooled down but is moist, this will activate the growth of roots before winter. Tulip bulbs are an easy bulb to grow, plant in any soil type and grow in full sun or semi shade. If you are planting in pots don’t let the soil dry out and leave plenty of room for the roots. Try to avoid using only compost, mix in some grit and garden soil with some drainage at the bottom. Plant the bulbs approximately 10cm deep and 8-10 cm apart in autumn between September and December, taller varieties should be sheltered from strong winds.

They will be shipped to you from the middle of September once we have received the bulbs.

How do I store tulip bulbs?

Once your Tulips have bloomed you can deadhead the flowers but do not remove the leaves. These will ensure the bulbs are able to gather and store the energy needed to bloom again the following year.

Tulip bulbs can be kept in the ground all year round, but you may find that they don’t put on as much of a display as the previous year.

Once the foliage has yellowed and died back, it can be removed, then carefully dig the tulip bulbs up. Clean the soil off and let the bulbs dry. Discard any damaged ones. Store tulip bulbs in nets or paper bags, but make sure you label them. Keep in a cool dark place ready to replant in the Autumn.
