Tulip Pretty Woman – is from the lily flowering tulip group. It is an absolute gorgeous lily flowering tulip. Tulip Pretty Woman has vibrant deep red flowers, with long petals that arch into a fine point. These flowers are on exceptionally strong stems that are around 50cm tall.
As a mid to late season tulip, flowering in May, it can be paired with single late tulips or other lily flowering tulips. We think it works very well with yellows or whites.
How to plant
Plant your tulip bulbs in autumn between September and December. It is often preferred to let the late summer pass to avoid the bulbs drying out or catching bugs. No pesticides are used in the production of our flower bulbs and most bulbs are disease resistant through careful cultivation. Tulips will develop roots but need the cold weather to activate the growth hormone that allows them to flower in spring. Do not allow them to get too wet over winter. Once they are growing you should keep them moist but not water logged or the flowers will shrivel before they have developed.
Place them 5-10cm apart and plant 10cm deep. They will grow in any soil but a free draining soil is best. Tulip Ballerina looks great in full sun but it can also be planted in semi shade too.
We recommend lifting the tulip bulbs once they have finished flowering because the bulb will split in too many smaller bulbs that will not be of flowering size for the following year. Tulip Pretty Woman are not too bad for this and you can improve their chances of producing bigger bulbs by removing their heads so that the energy from the leaves goes back into the bulb rather than the seed head.
