Looking for a tropical touch that's exotic, pretty and long blooming? Allow us to introduce these beauties. Known as Siam Tulips because of their origin - Thailand, formerly Siam - and their shape, these plants are worthy additions to both garden beds and containers. They grow 18-24" tall and are happy in sun to partial shade. Started in early spring - they take 3-5+ weeks of warmth to break dormancy and sprout - they flower from June through August. Ideal for adding an exotic touch to large mixed containers. This variety typically blloms earlier than others.
Siam tulips are rarely seen in plantings or in retail garden centers. If you love the look, you'll have to grow your own. And BTW, as you may have guessed, they aren't related to Dutch tulips at all.
