Description

Tulipa | An excellent ground cover, useful for erosion control

Plant 'Drakensteyn', a highly ornamental fringed tulip, in early to mid-fall, and in mid to late spring this spring ephemeral blooms in fun, fringy flowers with a classic tulip shape. Borne on long, elegant stems, the bold bicolored blooms—creamy white with bright pink fringes—are exceptionally long lasting and make lovely cuts for spring bouquets.

'Drakensteyn' has an upright habit. It naturalizes easily, with its sprawling clumps of narrow, linear foliage and showy blooms, appearing year after year, possibly for decades, in ideal conditions. Best planted in groups, 'Drakensteyn' makes an excellent ground cover, especially useful for erosion control in spring rains, and it mixes well with other spring-blooming bulbs. Consider planting in large sweeping drifts in open woodland areas, in smaller groupings in beds and borders or in front of shrubs, or in masses under deciduous trees. They also make great container plants and can be forced for cheery indoor blooms in winter.

'Drakensteyn', a cold hardy—to Zone 3—bulbous perennial, is easy to grow and maintain. The plant grows best in sunny locations with average to fertile, well-draining soil, having a slightly acidic to neutral pH. 'Drakensteyn' is disease resistant.
