Tulip Dordogne

Dordogne Tulips have strong, sturdy stems up to 65cm tall, and the eye-catching goblet-shaped blooms seem to change colour by the hour! At first glance, tangerine and rose are the dominant colours, then you notice that the outer petals are pinkish-yellow and orange, fading to light orange-yellow at the edges. There's yet more going on inside the flower, where it is yellow with a red band and yellow anthers. Clear green foliage sets off this myriad of colours perfectly. Take a look at our full range of tulips.

It has the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. This prestigious award means the plant has been trialled rigorously and has been approved as excellent for ordinary garden, its form and colour are stable and it is reasonably resistant to pests and diseases.

They are so robust they grow after the flowers have been cut, so have a long vase life.

Award-winning choice

It's tall and late-flowering in May, ideal to use as underplanting in a herbaceous border, especially where late-flowering summer perennials are also housed. Their fresh new foliage will act as a natural support for the tulips' long stems and a wonderful backdrop for the multiple colours of the blooms. It is also a long-lasting tulip in flower, so you can enjoy the display for longer than traditional varieties.

Florists love it, both for the unusual shades of their goblet-shaped flowers and their long stems.

Cultivation Instructions

Dordogne Tulips. Plant your bulbs from September to December 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Add grit if your garden has a heavy clay soil. Tulips need a lot of food, so dig in plenty of well-rotted organic material before planting. If planting in containers, space the bulbs 1-2cm apart in a single layer, or 2-3cm apart if layering them on top of each other. If the tulip fire virus is a problem where you live, delay planting until November or December.
