Tulip Dordogne – is a beautifully complex tulip. From the base a smoky purple leads into a pinkish orange. The edges of the outer petals are lined with a saffron yellow. A waxy white frosting coats the flower to give it a silvery sheen. The inside of the tulip flower is a strong orange which acts as a glowing well. Single late tulips flower in late April into May. They generally have an oval cup shaped flower on a long stem of 50cm. They are an excellent tulip to end the tulip season with as we head towards summer flowering bulbs. The warm colours of tulip Dordogne are an easy colour to pair with other tulips. They’ll flower with Double late tulips or parrot tulips but really look amazing partnered with dark tulips such as Queen of Night.
How to Plant
Tulip bulbs are easy to plant and grow well in most positions in the garden. To make sure of success remember to not over water in winter and keep moist in spring. The bud of the flower is already formed when you receive the dry bulbs. Plant in October to allow roots to form over winter. If the roots sit in water they can rot. Once the tulip bulb has at least 6 weeks of cold weather, the warm spring sun will activate the tulip into growing. If the bulb dries out the bud can wither before it has even emerged from the bulb.
