Tulip 'Spryng Break'

Tulipa

Hardy Bulb

This unique cross offers the best characteristics of two firm favourite tulip groups. Tulip 'Spryng Break' has the huge flower of Darwin types combined with the strong stems and long flowering window of Triumph. The big showy blooms start off white with red flames. As the display matures, the flames become more dominant, taking on a surrounding creamy yellow glow. You'll notice the change on a daily basis as the blooms open up each morning as the sun comes out. As our photo shows, this is the perfect variety for mass planting displays, but 16 bulbs set in a large container gives just as much impact on the patio. Height 75cm (26"). Spread 15cm (6"). Bulb size: 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.
