Flaming Beauties Tulip Collection

Flaming Beauties Tulip Collection

Fire Up Your Spring Garden!

Set your landscape ablaze in colour with the five fabulous varieties in our new Flaming Beauties Tulip Collection! The petals of each flamboyant flower has the distinctive, contrasting streaks referred to as "flames." Our Dutch bulb experts created this tulip assortment to display a kaleidoscope of colour in the garden--an ever-changing display of hues as the flowers mature.Flamed tulips look spectacular when planted together in border fronts or large groups. For best performance and colouration, grow them where they'll receive at least some sunlight: alongside walkways, beneath deciduous trees, or next to your porch or patio. Be sure to save some for the cutting garden, too. Wherever you use these vibrant varieties, the neighbours are sure to notice!
Tulipmania and Flamed Tulips
In the early 1600s, a frenzy of tulip bulb buying and selling called Tulipmania swept through Holland. It started when growers started noticing that a fraction of the bulbs they'd planted, instead of producing monochromatic flowers, inexplicably yielded blooms that "broke" into colourful streaks and flames. People were so taken by these rare "broken" tulips that the bulbs fetched enormous sums of money.We now know that a virus caused those gorgeous splashes of colour 400years ago. The varieties in our Flaming Beauties Tulip Collection were carefully bred to mimic those patterns, and are 100% healthy and vigorous!

Includes 5 each of Lemon Meringue, Princess Irene, Carnaval de Rio, Flaming Flag and Rainbow Parrot

Lemon Meringue This graceful Rembrandt type produces white-streaked, lemon-yellow blooms that, despite their subtle colouration, illuminate any garden! Classic cup-shaped flowers make gorgeous arrangements. Grows 18" tall.
Princess Irene With a colour palette that's fit for royalty, this award winner features brilliant orange petals with deep purple flames. Its regal flowers are ideal for fresh bouquets. Grows 14-16" tall.
Carnaval de Rio As colourful and splashy as the Brazilian festival it's named for, this tulip yields outsize, deeply cut, white blooms that flaunt scarlet-red flames. Stuns in mass plantings and vases. Grows 16-18" tall.
Flaming Flag Professional growers love Flaming Flag's staying power as a cut flower. The striking, 3½-4" blooms have the classic tulip shape but striking colouration--snow white petals with streaks of rich purple. Grows 14-16" tall.
Rainbow Parrot A fragrant and lavish variety, its feathery form is highlighted by splashes of yellow, green and rich brownish red. Plant in a seasonal border or use as a striking addition to fresh-cut arrangements. Grows 12-14" tall.

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
