FFF141 - TULIP 'QUEENSLAND'

Tulipa ‘Queensland’ has delicately fringed petals in a striking pinkish-white colour. They are double-flowering and look stunning as a cut flower, which is long-lasting in a vase and evokes a Spring-time atmosphere.

'Queensland' tulips grow well in pots or window-boxes. Make sure you use fresh potting compost and put a layer of gravel or hydro granules in the bottom. Place the bulbs in a hole that is 3 times as deep as the height of the bulbs. A 5 cm bulb should therefore be planted in a 15 cm hole. Planting distance between 'Queensland' tulips is about 6 cm. To protect the bulbs grown in a pot against frost, place the pot in a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap. Water during dry periods.

  5. What an exciting flower! I've read that the biggest problem with tulips is that they hate water in their dormant period. Maybe I'll try some in pots.
