Tulip 'Ice Cream'

Tulipa

Hardy Bulb

A Tulip that looks almost good enough to eat! The peony-like flowers of Tulip 'Ice Cream' used to fetch a pretty price when we first introduced it, but a few years of using specialist growers to bulk up our bulbs stocks means we can bring the price down dramatically. Take advantage of our new pricing to enjoy the luxuriant flowers in your garden or on the patio. Each flower opens over the course of a few weeks to finally explode with colour! Height: 40cm (16"). Spread 15cm (6"). Bulb size: 11/12,

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. However, some people have had strong allergic reactions to Tulip flowers. If touching them causes a rash, numbness etc. then Tulip flowers should not be eaten. Caution: Tulip bulbs should never be eaten. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant tulip bulbs in late summer or autumn. Tulips will grow well in any moist, well drained soil, except for particularly wet soils. Choose a sunny position that is sheltered from strong winds. When planting tulip bulbs avoid shallow planting as this may reduce the winter cold period that is essential for tulip bulbs to produce flowers in spring. Plant them at a depth of 15cm (6") and at a distance of 13cm (5") apart.
After flowering, deadhead the faded tulip flowers and allow the foliage to die back completely before removing it in summer. Caution: Tulip bulbs are an irritant to skin and eyes, and are harmful if eaten.
