The only Darwin Tulip with such rich lilac-pink blooms and dark stems! Starting with egg-shaped blooms in late spring, the blooms open to reveal a pale green base, pink petals, and white tips. As the season goes on, these impressive blooms mature to a white base with darker cerise-pink tones. This aptly-name Tulip is big and lovely, stretching up to 40 inches high and offering the huge blooms to match!

'Big Love' requires full sun and very good soil drainage. Unless your soil is naturally quite sandy, add some grit and/or plenty of soil conditioner to the planting hole. In very warm areas (like the Deep South), Tulips will probably not receive enough cool winter weather for them to properly vernalize so they can bloom next year. In these places you can consider your Tulips gorgeous annuals OR you can dig them up at the end of the season and refrigerate them for 8-12 weeks in a mesh or paper bag to mimic the cooler winters they are used to, then plant them as usual and watch their beauty return! Zones 3 to 8.
