Oriental Beauty Greigii Tulip

Details

Not only are the large, bowl-shaped red blooms stunning, but the deep green and dark red-brown, striped foliage is pretty amazing too!

Greigii Tulips were developed from the Tulipa greigii species, which is native to Turkestan. Greigii Tulips are low growing but the blooms are very large in proportion to the rest of the plant as a whole and let's admit it, we all grow tulips for the flower portion! They come in very bright colors, like red and yellow, and the flowers open wide in full sun, creating blooms that can be more than 5 inches  in diameter when fully open.

Due to their short height, Greigii Tulips are ideal for rock gardens and containers. They have an added attraction in that the leaves are usually patterned with stripes or spots, called 'mottling' in purple or brown. And one last terrific point about these lovely blooms is that they naturalize very well meaning they come back year after year and will slowly multiply in the garden.
