We're not lying when we say that Pinocchio Greigii Tulips are a lovely addition to the spring tulip garden. Greigii Tulips bloom early to mid spring, have stripped or spotted leaves, and are known to be good at returning for more than 1 season. Pinnochio Tulips are best suited for garden borders or rock gardens. Maturing at only 10" tall these charming scarlet blooms with white stripes are a neat and tidy garden accent.
Tulip Growing Advice
- Plant in full sun to partial shade
need cold temperatures in order to produce a bloom, and are best suited
in climates that have 12-16 weeks of consistently cold temps (below 50
degrees) during the day.
- Drainage is essential to the survival
of tulips. Plant in garden beds that have been amended with organic
matter if your soil does not drain well.
- To encourage the
possibility of blooms for the next season, keep the leaves intact until
they have yellowed, withered and can easily be removed from the soil.
