Tulip André Citroën is a triumph type tulip and has a deep red colour with yellow edges. This tulip is named after the Jewish-French car manufacturer André Gustave Citroën (1878-1935) who had a Dutch father. The Citroën car can still be seen on the Dutch roads and the tulip, with the same name, still grows strong! Triumph tulips are a crossbreed between single early tulips and single late varieties and give traditional-shaped flowers on sturdy stems.

Triumph tulips bloom in the period between the early and the late tulips and are available in every colour combination. They are suitable for every park and every garden.

Other information

  • First loosen the soil well where the flower bulbs will be planted. Then the soil is easier to work with.
  • Dig a hole and make sure it is 2 to 3 times as deep as the height of the tulip bulbs.
  • For the distance between the bulbs, make sure it is 2 times the diameter of the bulbs.
  • Plant the flower bulbs in the hole with the pointed side facing up or with the root base facing down.
  • Cover the tulip bulbs with soil and water them well.

Pre-orders can be placed until the first week of August, which will be shipped in the first half of September and delivered in October.
