What a charmer! The tulip and daffodil varieties in this mix are perfectly matched for butter-and-sugar color and incomparable beauty in the midseason garden. Enjoy 12 bulbs -- 7 of the tulip, 5 of the daffodil -- that bloom at the same time and offer twice the petal power of most others!

Tulip Yellow Pomponette is a double-flowered Darwin Hybrid, absolutely brimming with short, bright golden petals held in a chalice shape. These blooms are enormous, and last well on vigorous, strong plants. Darwin Hybrids are the gold standard of the tulip family, more hardy and stronger than other types, and Yellow Pomponette is a standout even among its siblings. Stunning color and so much of it!

Daffodil White Lion is a double-flowered (Division IV) variety with short, pointy white petals mingled in with a few pale yellow segments. This gives the whole double-flowered bloom a starry shape and a pop of contrasting color. Together, these two bulbs really do suggest the moon and stars!

In this mix you get 7 tulip bulbs and 5 daffodil. They will reach almost the same height: the tulip averages 20 to 24 inches high, while the daffodil reaches 16 to 18 in most climates. They will bloom at exactly the same time, so you can enjoy the full "night sky" of brilliant color in your mid-spring garden or vase!

These bulbs should be spaced 8 to 10 inches apart for dense coverage. Both the Tulip and the Daffodil love sun, and appreciate a good deep planting, especially at the warmer end of their hardiness range. Cold stimulates the blooms!

Plant Moon & Stars Mix in the border, bed, along the driveway, in a meadow, and on street islands. You'll be delighted with its play of soft spring color! Zones 3-8.
