Organic fosteriana tulip
Tulip 'Ingens' is a special tulip variety that is one of the first tulips to bloom. A striking feature of Tulipa 'Ingens' is the 40 centimeter high flower stem that has a reddish glow. The name 'Ingens' means 'huge', which is appropriate given the size of the flowers.
The flower is light red in color at the beginning of flowering and changes to a beautiful bright red color as it blooms. They are pointed, cup-shaped, quite large for a botanical tulip and have a shiny surface, which gives them an impressive appearance and is also perfect as a cut flower. The leaves of this tulip variety are flat and have a ribbon-shaped structure.
How, where and when do I plant a tulip bulb?
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 and the spacing 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 tulip bulbs
After the cold winter, the tips rise and the bulb inside forms a flower that starts to bloom in April. The flower blooms until the end of May and then produces ovules. The faded flowers are cut off at the top so that the power goes to the flowerbulb instead of to the seed of the faded flower. Leave the foliage still attached because they ensure photosynthesis so that the flowerbulb gathers strength for the following year. Allow the foliage to die completely so that the strength returns to the bulb.
The Tulipa 'Ingens' is a botanical tulip and therefore somewhat stronger than large tulip varieties. These natural plants can remain in the ground after flowering so that they can bloom profusely again the following year. She comes back every year.
As the 'Ingens' develops, the original flowerbulb can multiply by forming small bulbs. In the autumn, when the plant is dormant, these small bulbs can be carefully separated from the mother bulb. The small bulbs can then be planted separately to create new plants.
Origin of the tulip
Tulipa 'Ingens' is native to Central Asia, particularly the Pamir-Alai and Zeravshan regions. These regions are located in the mountainous region of Central Asia and are known for their diverse flora. The first collection of this tulip variety was done by Paul Graeber in 1901.
