No color in the garden glows more brightly than this pure red, double-flowered Tulip! A Peony-Flowered type that blooms late in the season, 'Red Princess' is the ideal Tulip for garden or vase, attracting attention and compliments in any setting.

The blooms have twice the petal power, and are held in a rounded form that resembles a Peony. They open slowly on 18-inch stems, and are quite long-lasting in garden or vase. A dependable favorite that always gives its best, 'Red Princess' deserves a place of honor.

Like all Tulips, this one performs best in deep, loamy, sandy soil, well-enriched each year with organics. It may be annual in the warmest parts of the country, and can be grown as an annual far south of its hardiness range. In northern regions, it will return for several seasons of beauty in the sunny garden. Zones 3 to 8. Pack of 10 bulbs.

Planting Spring-Blooming Bulbs

With Wayside’s bulbs, growing gorgeous flowers is as easy as Dig, Drop, Done.


Dig:

The first thing you want to do is pick your spot and dig the hole for your bulbs. Avoid places with standing water, as this could cause bulb rot. A good rule of thumb when planting is to dig down 3 times the height of the bulb, but you should follow the specific instructions for your bulb. Make sure to space out your bulbs to give your plants the right amount of room to grow later.

Drop:

Now put your bulbs in the ground, pointy side up. For fall planting, be sure to get the bulbs in before the first frost. For spring planting, the time varies by plant. Afterwards, cover the bulbs with soil and then water them in. This helps wake the bulbs up from dormancy and get them growing again.

Now you’re Done!

Just sit back and wait, and in the spring your bulbs will sprout up and reward you with their beautiful blooms throughout the season. Growing flowers from Wayside bulbs really is that easy!
