What are Species Tulips?
Species tulips are spring bulbs that can be left in the ground to return year on year and will naturalise if left undisturbed. They are shorter, smaller and look delicate, this variety of Species Tulips originate from the rocky islands of the Aegean Sea, including Kos and Crete, making it quite hardy.
Planting Species Tulip bulbs
Plant Species Tulip bulbs in the same way as you would with hybrid tulips; at around a depth of 15-20cm and approximately 15cm apart, in borders, pots or grass. It doesn’t matter if the bulbs fall on their side as they will sort themselves out. After they have finished flowering, leave the foliage in place to die back before removing, allowing nutrients to transfer back into the bulb to be stored for flowering next spring. Species Tulips can be left in the ground as reliable perennials.
If you would like Tulip Saxatalis to naturalise, deadhead spent flowers to prevent energy being used on seed production, they will spread by underground runners.
