Angelique Tulip

Wednesday's Story

Throwback Wednesday…

I’ve been spending time reorganizing my floral photographs. In doing so, I’ve been reminded of my original concept of shooting in my studio and sharing a flower five days a week. It became apparent that the latter of the two was definitely unrealistic. It was a concept in development, and it’s fun to see how it’s evolved. So, for the fun of it, I thought I would take you back with me to those beginning days…

points of interest

An exquisite semi-double, or peony type, pale rose-pink tulip flushed with darker and lighter shades and creamy-pink edges. Late flowering and bowl shaped. The smooth stems may have 2-3 terminal flowers with broad, ovate, gray-green leaves, ascending alternately. Wonderful as a cut flower, in a flowerbed or forced indoors. Suitable for bedding or border.

general care

Grow in fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly acidic soil in full or afternoon sun. Requires a long winter for dormancy. Dislikes excessive moisture. Plant base of bulb to depth of 8” in autumn. Plant in groups 3” apart for maximum effect. Fertilize with a balanced mix after flowering. Deadhead, but allow foliage to yellow for about 6 weeks to restore the bulb.

friday’s flower fact

If the Angelique Tulip is used as a cut flower, replant annually, as cutting will diminish vigor.
