    More Information

    Tulip Esperanto – is a Viridiflora Tulip. This group of tulips are recognisable from the green stripe emanating from the base of the flower head. They are a late flowering tulip bulb and mix well with other late season tulips. Try with such bulbs as fringed or single late tulips. Tulip Esperanto is coloured china rose, into white, surrounding a broad midrib of flamed green. It has variegated leaves, another of the shorter Viridiflora varieties.

    What are Viridiflora Tulips?

    Viridiflora Tulips are also known as Green Tulips, some, such as Tulip Esperanto, are largely green with a hint of colour on the edge of the petals, others have much more discreet green shading. Viridiflora tulips are perennial, making them a reliable, low maintenance option. The elegant blooms are long lasting making them excellent cut flowers.

    How to grow Viridiflora Tulips

    Tulip bulbs are tolerant of all soil types and both sunny and semi shaded positions. They prefer a well draining soil so they don’t sit in water when it gets very wet, as this can damage the roots. If the soil dries out it can effect the growth of the flower. However, don’t water too much over winter. There will be enough moisture in the soil to produce roots. Once the weather starts to warm up, water more regularly.

    Once Tulip Esperanto has finished flowering, remove the heads and seed pod. This will allow energy to feed back into the tulip bulb ready to flower next year. They are perennials, so you don’t have to lift the bulbs in summer, but if you do, store the bulbs in a cool dry place with plenty of air flow, ready to replant the following October.
