The World's Largest Tulip is a mid to late season bloomer and will tolerate full
to partial sun. Michigan Bulb Co. is suggesting planting it at the back of the
border behind shorter tulips. We think it would be a nice partner in this arrangement
for a pure white Darwin Tulip, or possible parrot tulip bulbs in wild, unexpected
Michigan Bulb Huge Tulip
The Michigan Bulb Company is a name which is becoming familiar to Internet gardening shoppers.
This fall they are offering a neat new product, which they are calling the World's Largest
The tulip is a sunset-like mix of orange, yellow, red and pink and the blooms
are 6". That is, indeed, a large tulip flower, and when you add to this that it can reach
40" in heigh, we're talking about a towering tulip!
We'd also like to add that Michigan Bulb is offering dwarf purple fritillaria bulbs, buy
5 get 5 free. If you've never grown fritillarias, you're missing out on a wonderful
garden delight. Other good deals from this rising company include 60 crocus bulbs for $19.99
and 25 colorful Rembrandt Tulip bulbs for $5.99. Come to think of it, those Rembrandt tulips
might make a stunning companion for the World's Largest tulips. Perhaps with a few more
muted Apricot Beauty tulip bulbs mixed in for a mellow mid-tone. We think that's a plan
the Dutch would smile on!
