Tulipa cretica Hilde

A selection of Tulipa cretica, cicra 1853, this dainty charmer is so very beautiful yet tough enough to withstand the rocky mountains of Crete from whence it hails. Producing up to three star-shaped flowers per stem, Hilde has a whisper-pink interior with a golden-yellow heart and a pale pink exterior accented with darker purple-pink striations. (We introduced it as a website-only special last fall and it sold out within days.) Tulip Class: Species. Bulb size: 6 cm/up. Late April/May. HZ: 3-8. 6” to 7”.

Tulips are The Art & Soul of Spring.
