Tulipa Diana

It may sound unflattering but Diana tulip flowers are like snow-white goose eggs. Another way to think about them is that these flowers are simply, divinely heavenly. Which is what Diana means. The petals are flawless and that brilliant white of virgin snow. There is nothing fancy or frilly about this tulip, just simple, understated perfection in a flower. The sturdy stem keeps it upright in even the gustiest of weather and the wide, mid-green leaves remain closer to ground level so that you really get the full effect of the flower without any distraction. See our collection of tulip bulbs here.

Diana tulips in your garden

For the minimalists amongst you this is THE white tulip to have. Fill your pots with Diana bulbs to appreciate the evanescent qualities of this flower; it will be like having moonlight in your garden. Use Diana to provide contrast with some of the more colourful Double Early tulips - Abba and Monte Carlo - which will overlap and continue the display, or keep everything white with Narcissus Thalia followed by White Triumphator. Hyacinths are out at this time too so that you can have fragrance and beauty at the same time. Whatever your colour scheme there is always room for white, even just as an accent point as the great painters did. Because the flower is particularly large, Diana makes a really lovely cut flower too.

The Diana Myth...no, not that Diana

This tulip was named after the Roman Goddess of hunting - also called Artemis in Greek - who eschewed marriage and, in spite of her virginal status, was goddess of birthing as well as the moon. It is perhaps this latter connection that is really apt for this flower. Diana was associated with oak trees too and so as a little classical nod you could plant lots of these tulips close to an oak tree in her honour.
