What are Lily Flowered Tulips?
Lily flowered tulips are hybrids, they produce slender flowers, often with recurving, pointed petals. The stems are not very sturdy, making them prone to wind damage, so they are best planted in a sheltered position. Like most tulips, they bloom best the first year after planting. They will often bloom again in the second year, but with smaller and fewer flowers.
Growing lily flowered tulips
In order to keep your Tulip Marilyn healthy, there are several steps you should take when growing and caring for them. One of the most important things to consider when planting these tulips is the location. Find a spot in your garden with well-draining soil that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight throughout the day. Plant bulbs 10cm deep, spacing them at least 8cm apart from one another. Once planted, be sure to water them regularly so that the soil stays moist, but not soggy.
Finally, once the tulips have finished flowering and the foliage has turned yellow or brown, it’s time to cut back the stems and deadhead spent flowers. You can lift the tulip bulbs as soon as they have finished flowering or wait until you plant your dahlias. This will ensure that your garden remains neat and tidy throughout spring and summer months.
