The scoop on Tulip Bakeri Lilac Wonder

Like yellow and white Tarda, Lilac Wonder is one of the more widely planted botanical tulips. Rightfully so. The contrasting light purple and yellow petal markings ensure that the colors stand out even with the other blooms of spring in full force. Plant several handfuls of these in groundcover and throughout perennial beds to elevate your spring garden several notches.

Why Grow Species Tulips?

  • Species tulips are non-hybridized varieties, natural little beauties that are identical to their cousins still growing out in the wild
  • These determined plants survive in tough terrain - rocky hillsides in Turkey, Syria, Greece, Northern Africa, Lebanon, Jordan and Mongolia
  • Species tulips are long lived and happiest with plain soil and non-diva treatment
  • Plant these smaller tulips in generous groupings; they tend to look best in clumps rather than formal rows

Tulip Lilac Wonder is a winner! It has earned the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
