This delicious-looking Tulip Ice Cream has become everybody’s favourite in such a short time! This peony-shaped double tulip literally looks like a delightful vanilla-raspberry ice cream. The bottom part of the petals is in a cup shape and has a raspberry red colour. On the inside of this unique “red cup” is a frilled white whip-cream-looking petal filling. It really looks tasty!

Ice Cream tulip belongs to the double late tulip group that bloom in late spring (April-May) and often grows taller than the earlier varieties. The Ice Cream tulip, however, doesn’t grow tall enough for being suitable for cut flower use, but it looks astonishing in the display of your 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.
