Tulipa ‘Ev­er­green’

Gardens Illustrated Magazine - - Dig In Plantsman’s Favourites -

This is pos­si­bly the long­est-flow­er­ing tulip of all with flow­ers con­tin­u­ing well into June and last­ing for weeks in the house as a cut flower. The se­cret of this ex­tra­or­di­nary stamina is the chloro­phyll held within the petals, which pho­to­syn­the­sise in much the same way as fo­liage does to pro­vide sus­te­nance to the plant. The soft, green flow­ers are use­ful in the more quiet ar­eas of the gar­den where loud colours might look too brazen. ‘Ev­er­green’ sits well with wall­flow­ers or sweet rocket. If us­ing as a cut flower, ar­range with al­li­ums and hon­esty for a striking dis­play. Height 45cm. Ori­gin Gar­den ori­gin. Con­di­tions Any gar­den soil. Har­di­ness RHS H7. Sea­son Spring.
