Tulip Red Impression

This jewel-toned ruby beauty is varying shades of ruby-red and delft-rose with an exterior plum-purple base and a blood-red interior with a black base ringed in canary-yellow. Its buds develop as two-tone beauties with paler cheeks blushed chartreuse before they turn deep red. Red Impression is eye-poppyingly gorgeous blended with its sibling, Pink Impression. It's also lovely in bouquets with Giant Darwin Hybrid Tulips Akebono, Banja Luka and Golden Parade and Triumph Tulip Suncatcher. A sport of Pink Impression, Red Impression delivers huge bang for the buck. Tulip Class: Giant Darwin Hybrid. Bulb size: 12 cm/up. Late April/May. HZ: 3-7. Height: 20" to 22".

Tulips are The Art & Soul of Spring.

  • Information
  • Giant Darwin Hybrid Tulips
    Giant Darwin Hybrid Tulips were introduced to the United States by John Scheepers, our great uncle, in 1951. Sometimes referred to as “perennial tulips” by others, their huge, vibrant flowers on strong stems are more apt to return for multiple years of blooms than other sorts of Tulips, but that is not a guarantee. They have been known to return for multiple years when planted in a nice sunny spot with good drainage, fertilized regularly, never cut for bouquets and dead-headed once the flower is spent. One must also allow the foliage to thrive in the sunlight unfettered by being tied up or covered up with other plant material until it yellows and dies back naturally. This allows the bulb to benefit for the maximum period of photosynthesis and chlorophyll production to nourish and grow the bulb. Flowering from mid-April into May, these stately tulips are excellent for spectacular garden displays and lovely cut flower arrangements. Top size bulbs: at least 12 cm. Bloom time: Mid-April into May. Plant 6" to 8" deep and 6" apart. Horticultural zones 3-7. Height: 18" to 26" depending on the variety.
