Tulip Darwin Hybrid
Lalibela is the earliest and longest lasting Darwin Hybrid tulip to bloom with shiny orange-red flowers.
New to the Bulbs Direct catalogue, but already showing to be a hot ticket item!
The large flowers are deep orange red and open mid season. The flowers bloom on red flushed stems.
Darwin Tulips are the all-round toughest Tulips, and by far the best choice for anyone new to gardening. They can handle most conditions, and are a particularly good choice for warmer climates.
Darwin Hybrids are bred to have strong stems, and large flowers - making them a fantastic cutflower.
Flowering early/mid season. 50cm tall.
Tulips love colder climates, but also do incredibly well in warmer climates (even as far North as the Cape!) - if you don’t have a cold climate like ourselves, we recommend chilling your Tulip Bulbs for 6 to 8 weeks prior to planting. This will trick them into thinking they are having their Winter period, and prolong their stems and Flowering period.
