Tulip Eternal Flame - Tulip Bulbs
Tulip Eternal Flame is beautiful even before it flowers with attractive variegated foliage that adds colour to beds and borders, and containers. The deep rose pink flowers appear quite late in the season, despite Tulip Eternal Flame being listed as a double early tulip. And the pink-tinged green leaves make this tulip decorative for a long time.
Plant tulip bulbs from October to November. Plant the bulbs at a depth of at least three times their height into free draining soil in a sunny, sheltered site.
Avoid planting bulbs in soil that gets waterlogged; and on heavy soils add grit to the planting hole to prevent bulbs rotting.
Tulips are native to hot dry regions of Iran and Turkey where they thrive on very free-draining soils. The bulbs enjoy hot summer sunshine but they also need a period of winter cold to produce the best flowers.
Plant tulips in containers of gritty compost f you garden on wet, heavy soil. Plant the bulbs at a depth of at least three times the bulb’s height.
Tulip Eternal Flame is grouped in Class 2: Double early tulips, often commonly called peony-flowered tulips. The tulips in this class are characterised by their double peony-like blooms, they usually flower in April but some can still be in bloom into May.
