Tulip La Belle Epoque

La Belle Epoque Tulips are known as 'peony' tulips because of the many layers of petals. The color of this tulip is a shimmery shape-shifter, dancing from a dusty caramel amber color, to a salmon apricot hue. It has a silvery gleam, and looks gorgeous paired with pink blooms.

Tulips make the spring garden sing. And there's little care involved, just tuck them into the ground before it freezes, and wait for your spring bounty. Plus, the petals are edible so you can nibble your way through the garden.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole and tuck your bulbs in, pointy side up, about 6" deep (roughly 3 times the size of the bulbs) and about 3" apart. You can plant them closer for a fuller display, but be sure the bulbs don't touch. Now fill in the soil, give it a few solid pats so it compresses around the bulbs, then give it a long drink of water. Mark that pot or spot with your wooden plant marker so you know where your tulips live now. Wait for spring
Where to Plant Find a place that gets at least partial sun; 4 or more hours a day
When to Plant If planting in a cold region, plant in the fall, anytime before the ground freezes for the last time. If planting in a warm region, (zones 9 and warmer), place your bulbs in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator, in the bags they came in, by themselves (without other produce). Remove from fridge after at least 6 weeks and plant in late winter
When to Expect Blooms Mid spring
Care Instructions Water when soil is dry, once leaves appear
Extra Credit If planting in a container, be sure the pot has ample drainage. Fill the bottom 2-3" of the pot with pebbles to prevent clogging. Wait for the foliage to wilt and turn yellow before clipping it back late spring, so that the bulb can store energy for the next year's blooms. When picking flowers for bouquets, be sure to leave at least one leaf per plan
