Tulip tarda is one of the most popular of the dwarf tulips and easy to cultivate in a sunny position. It has a rosette of narrow green leaves with up to five flowers on each stem, close enough together as to appear in a bunch, opening out flat in the sun with a honey scent. The Tulip tarda flower has a large central yellow eye and the tips of the petals are white. Externally there is a greenish suffusion. Best grown en masse in a sunny situation in rockery, a raised bed or in pots.
This plant/cultivar has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant.
Tulip tarda bulbs should be planted 4" (10cm) deep, about 3" (8cm) apart in a situation that catches the April sunshine.
Height 5" (12cm)
