    Akebono Darwin hybrid tulip is a highly coveted mid blooming tulip. Darwin hybrids typically bear large blooms, and Akebono does not disappoint it has large double blooms that feature an array of colors. The main color of the blooms is a canary yellow, however splashes of red, green and orange are often seen on the petals. These will glow in your mid-Spring garden and impress not only you but your friends, family and entire neighborhood!

    Akebono pairs well with other double tulips such as Lilac Perfection and Carnival de Nice Double Late Tulips.

    Tulip Growing Advice

    • Plant in full sun to partial shade
    • Tulips 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.
    • Fertilize tulips in fall at planting with a slow release granular fertilizer. When leaves emerge in Spring you may fertilize your tulips again with the same slow release granular fertilizer.

    I planted in Illinois 75 akebonos on nov 7th, 2020, every single bulb emerged. Huge size bulbs and great quality. Didn't use any fertilizer and planted on a heavy clay soil, so I was surprised to see them performing that well. I have a lot of pictures, didn't find a way to apload them here.

    Good size bulbs, easy to plant and grow. I love the sweet pale but energizing yellow color of this tulip. Along with my other tulips, it added beauty to my naked garden. I planned to keep this variety and add more in the future.
