Tulip Slawa

Tulip Slawa – is a burgundy triumph tulip, with an apricot edge and named after a town in Poland. Similar to the colouring of Tulip Gavota, a long time favourite of ours, it is definitely one to try. The deeper colours of Tulip Slawa give this tulip quite a dark and mysterious look.

    More Information

    Tulip Slawa – is a burgundy triumph tulip, with an apricot edge and named after a town in Poland. Similar to the colouring of Tulip Gavota, a long time favourite of ours, it is definitely one to try. The deeper colours of Tulip Slawa give this tulip quite a dark and mysterious look. It would pair well with pinks, oranges, whites and reds. Triumph tulip bulbs are our largest group of tulips and are fantastic to mixing with other colours. Choosing your bulbs by the flowering time is the best way to make a beautiful spring time display. This group of bulbs are single flowering, mid season tulips with strong sturdy stems. Perfect for cutting too, see our article on cutting flowers

    How to Plant

    Plant your Tulip Slawa bulbs in a hole of around 10-15cm deep in well drawing soil. They don’t need a lot of water during winter so make sure they drain well if planted in pots. Once they are actively growing make sure that they don’t dry out or this will make the flowers shrivel before they’ve even begun.

    We recommend lifting tulips once they have finished for the season. The bulb splits into many smaller bulbs and many of them will not be flowering size. You can save the bulblets if you are prepared to nurture them upto a good size. This can take a couple of years. It also helps to remove the seed head so the leaves can concentrate their energy into the bulb.
