Zone 3 Flowers: Double Late/Sun Lover Tulipa

Aren't these pretty? I think they look a lot like circus roses which are my favorite flower so when I found these and that I could grow them here I was very excited! I planted all my bulbs already so now I just sit and wait till spring!

Bloom Time:  May
Color:  Red and Yellow
Foliage Color:  Green
Hardiness Zone: 3,4,5,6,7

Description: Unbeatable for large flowers and brilliant color.  The flowers of this standout double-late tulip are a vibrant golden yellow with light red brush marks—a color so bright and vibrant that they seize attention even from across the yard.  Tall and vigorous, Sun Lover grows 20- to 24-inches and blooms in May.  Plant a bed full to brighten the entire garden and cut some for spectacular bouquets.

Plant 6'' deep and 5'' apart. Cover with mulch to add extra protection in the winter. They can be in full sun to part shade.
