Tulip La Romaine
Pack of 4
Tulip La Romaine (Tulipa hybrida) is a stunner with gorgeous pink blooms. The camera simply does not do justice to this gorgeous variety!
Single Late Tulips have tall strong stems with well shaped blooms that retain their shape and colour to the end. They are the best variety for naturalising and are perfect for warmer regions, but will also work well in a cooler area and extend the display well through the Spring Months. Ideal for pots, containers and garden beds, they also make excellent cut flowers. Single Late Tulips are the best choice for warmer climates, cool them in your fridge for 6 weeks then plant them deeper than recommended, and lift them once they die off.

Common Name: TULIPS
Family Name: Liliaceae
Botanical Name: Tulipa
Plant Type: Bulb
Size: 20-60cm H x 15cm W
Planting Width: 15cm Depth: 10cm
Planting Time: Autumn
Positioning: Full sun position, but can be grown in a position that receives at least half a day of full sun.
General Information: Suitable for temperate/dry and Mediterranean climates. Require winter chilling in warm climates.
Watering: Tulips like to be kept cool and moist but not too wet. After planting, water well, and once leaves appear they should be given a good watering every 7-10 days depending on how dry the weather is. During dry times of the year, be sure to water regularly, especially after the buds have appeared.
Fertilising: Prepare the soil with a complete organic fertiliser before planting and then use a liquid fertiliser once the buds have appeared and then again after the flowers have faded.
Soil: Well-drained soil, high in organic matter.
Lifting & Storage: Should be lifted each year. Dig after the foliage has turned yellow. Allow the bulbs to dry out, out of the sun, and then store them in a cool, dry and airy position.
Pests: Aphids can be controlled by regular rinsing and insecticide.
Tips: Plant in cool weather (late April or May), if required place bulbs in the crisper for 4-6 weeks before planting. Double, Darwin and Triumph Tulips flower earlier than Single Late and Parrot varieties, so to keep Tulips in bloom throughout the season plant a mixture of early and late flowering varieties. If using as cut flowers choose blooms that are not fully open, cut them early in the morning and change vase water frequently. They like some protection from the wind.
