Quebec Tulip Bulbs
Like all the members of its group, Tulipa greigii Quebec is a short, sturdy tulip with mottled leaves. Its flowers - the plural is used advisedly as it produces 3-5 blooms per bulb - open wide to show of golden petals with splashes of red and cream edges. Or it might be red petals with gold and cream borders... either way this is a fantastic, naturalising "rockery" tulip. However, if it is not for you, why not have a look at the remainder of our range of spring flowering tulip bulbs for sale.
Officially, Quebec flowers in April and May, but in our trial last year, it actually opened half way through March. No promises but the flowering range therefore seems to be quite wide. Ours were planted 20 cms deep and still stood about 30cms tall when in flower. We discovered that they need to be spaced fairly widely as the flowers are large and with several per plant, they display better if the bulbs are at least 15 cms (6") apart. Quebec also looks much better in drifts of 15-20 plants, but do not plant in "regimental" rows...
