Description

Truly one of the most distinctive tulips you'll ever see. White petals are closely mounded against one another and form a central cone that resembles vanilla ice cream. Strawberry-pink petals, tinged with green, encircle this lush delight. As a border or container plant these 4" blooms are certainly eye-catching. Dazzling in a cut-flower arrangement.

Brighten your home's garden in late spring when you plant these Ice Cream tulip bulbs in fall. The unique look of the Ice Cream tulip makes it a focal point of your garden. A central cone comprised of bright white petals is surrounded by lush pink petals and protected by green petals, giving the flower the look of a favourite summer treat.

Ice Cream tulip bulbs flourish in zones 3 through 8. Plant them 3 to 6 inches apart and approximately 6 inches deep. They do best in well-drained sandy, loamy, or clay soil in an area of full to partial sun. These long-stemmed flowers grow at a medium rate until they reach 20 to 22 inches tall. The spread is less than 6 inches, so they are great for small spaces. Green leaves nourish the bulbs, so allow the foliage to die back naturally. Ensure vibrant flowers from mid to late spring by deadheading regularly.

Add these eye catching flowers anywhere. They're a delightful accent in a raised bed or as a focal point in containers. Use them to create a colourful outline for a garden path or to border taller spring bloomers like iris. They pair well with other tulip varieties, as well as snow drops, hyacinth and crocus. Treat yourself to an Ice Cream tulip bouquet.
