Organic botanical tulips

The Tulipa clusiana 'Taco' is a beautiful botanical tulip known for its refined beauty. This tulip belongs to the clusiana group, also known as wild or botanical tulips.

The clusiana 'Taco' has elongated petals with a combination of yellow and red, of which the yellow color is brighter than that of the variant; Tulipa clusiana 'Tinka'. The petals are red on the outside and have a fine yellow edge, which creates a subtle and elegant effect. The flower remains closed in dark weather and in sunny weather it opens completely and blooms for a very long time. The flower has a light scent that adds to its charm and the petals are edible.

The flower grows on a slender, straight stem that can reach a height of about 15 to 20 centimeters and each flower stem bears one flower. It blooms in spring and is a beautiful addition to rock gardens, borders and flower beds.

One of the attractive qualities of the Tulipa clusiana 'Taco' is its natural appearance. It has a wild, uncultivated charm that fits perfectly into natural garden designs. In addition, it is also suitable for naturalization, which means that it can multiply and return over the years.

How, where and when do I plant clusiana tulips?

A tulip bulb is a flowerbulb that needs a cold period. The flowerbulb grows best in the autumn October planted so that it sits in the ground in winter and gets that cold period. When planting, maintain 2 to 3 times the height of the flowerbulb itself distance keep 2 to 3 times the width of the flowerbulb.

Plant the flowerbulbs in a spot in the sun or in partial shade. It likes nutrient-rich, fertile soil, preferably loamy soil. If you have sandy soil, mix some clay minerals into the planting hole and in case of clay soil you can add some organic material to the planting hole for better drainage. Make sure the soil remains well-drained, as too much moisture around the bulbs can lead to rot.

Care of the botanical tulips

This botanical tulip variety, Tulipa clusiana 'Taco', returns reliably every year. If the flowerbulbs grow above the ground, it is important to replant them at the correct planting depth in the fall. Dig them out and plant them at a depth of 2 to 3 times the height of the bulb so that they are well protected during the winter months. This way they can develop optimally and produce beautiful flowers again the next growing season.
