    More Information

    Tulip Purple Dream – is an amazing tulip that seems to move like no other tulip. As a lily flowering tulip the petals are long and thin. In cold weather the tulip flower head closes tight like a paint brush. Given a little heat, the flower opens up wide, displaying the full length of the extended petals. They twist gently and display a bright white central star at the base. As with many of the long stemmed lily flowering tulips, tulip Purple Dream bends over slightly and nods in the wind. A brilliant tulip bulb and worth a try for a least one season in your garden.

    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.

    Planting lily flowered tulip bulbs

    Plant lily flowered tulip bulbs in autumn in any soil but preferably with good drainage. Plant around 10cm deep and 8-10cm apart. The bulbs can be planted in full sun to get the full effect of them opening up or in semi shade to prolong the flowering time.

    We recommend that you lift tulip bulbs in the summer. You can still keep the small bulbs in pots providing you keep them in good health and check on what’s going on under the soil every summer. It takes a few years before small bulblets are ready to flower. It’s not an easy job and often easier to start with fresh bulbs each year.
