Glorious blooms up to 6 inches wide stand out even among the bold and surprising colors of the tulip garden on this splendid Tulip 'Rosy Delight'

Flowering ahead of most other Darwin Hybrids and outlasting all of them, Tulip 'Rosy Delight' is truly exceptional in flower size, color intensity, and bloom longevity. The petals of each 4- to 6-inch flower are almost neon-bright in their deep reddish pink hues, slowly unfurling to full majesty in the garden or vase. Spectacular for cutting, Tulip 'Rosy Delight' is also a good choice for garden use, because its thick, waxy blooms on very sturdy stems can withstand rough spring rainstorms and winds. Tulip 'Rosy Delight' is simply a powerhouse!

Expect this flowering bulb to reach 22 to 24 inches high and 4 to 6 inches wide in the sunny garden. It will bloom in mid-spring in most climates, near the end of the tulip season. What a finale!

The most popular Tulips in American gardens, Darwin hybrids combine huge flower size with perfect form, tall stems, and reliable, vigorous performance year after year. Make Tulip 'Rosy Delight' a centerpiece of your spring-blooming bulb garden this season! Zones 3-8.

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


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.


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!
