Tulipa 'Golden Apeldoorn'

Golden Apeldoorn (Tulipa 'Golden Apeldoorn') tulips, with their bright golden flowers and tall stems, are a well-loved classic of the Darwin Hybrid group.

Large golden-yellow blooms appear on stems of up to 70cm tall in April/May and can last for up to 3 weeks. The beautiful bright flowers have a contrasting black star at their centre, only revealed once the bloom opens.

These tulips will flower reliably for many years without lifting. They add brilliance to our Tulip Naturalising Collection.

Golden Apeldoorn is a firm favourite for cutting, whilst also performing fabulously in beds, borders and containers. Browse all of our tulips bulbs here.

Plant Care

Tulips like to be planted in the colder weather of October/November. Plant the bulbs 15-20cm deep in well-drained, fertile soil, 10-15cm apart. (If planting in clumps, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm square; in pots, a dozen bulbs per 12-inch container will give an excellent display.)

They will tolerate most soil pH, preferring neutral to slightly acidic, but good drainage is the key. This is especially important in containers; they like moisture, but must not stand in water. Tulips would always choose full sun, but will tolerate partial shade.

Don't feed the plants during the growing season as this will tend to produce leggy growth. If planting in containers, protect the pots from severe frost/wind by wrapping them up in straw or bubble wrap, or simply storing in the garage.

Containers must be watered in dry periods leading up to flowering. Dead-head the flowers once they have faded and remove the seed pod, but don't cut the foliage back until it has died down naturally as this will impede flowering in following years. This variety will continue flowering for many years without lifting.

Look Out For...

Keep a watchful eye out for slugs and snails as the plants emerge – take all your usual precautions until they are growing strongly.

Squirrels have a passion for digging up freshly planted tulip bulbs! If you know this will be a problem in your garden, plant them deeper than usual (30cm should foil their efforts), or cover the freshly dug hole with some chicken wire.

Did You Know...

Golden Apeldoorn was first introduced in 1955. It's a member of the Darwin Hybrid group, known for their regal stature (they are amongst the tallest tulips), their huge blooms in vivid colours and their ability to flower strongly year after year.
