Description
If Halloween were in spring, this tulip would probably be Number 1. Its the result of decades of work trying over and over to breed a truly black tulip. Queen of the Night is the closest any of the Dutch hybridizers have ever come to black, even though it's really a deep deep purple. In some light it appears jet black. And in arrangements, it is the flower arranger's darling and the gardener's pride. The experts in Holland tell us men particularly love this tulip along with the pure red ones. It's just as easy to grow as all the others, so why not invite the dark queen into your garden, and watch the neighbors oooh and ahhh.'

      Comments about American Meadows Single Late Tulip Bulbs Queen of the Night:

      I ordered these back in Nov. to Idaho when we still had no snow and was "hopeful" to get them in the ground. They arrived in a timely matter but the weather had not held. So I saved them and kept them in a cold garage all winter long. I planted them a few days ago in a flower bed around my new flagpole. When I opened the package, there was a little mold but sprouts, so I am hopeful they do take root and bloom. It has been raining non-stop since I managed to get them in the ground, so I am hopeful.

        These tulips are amazing. All of the bulbs came up, and the blooms were a sultry shade of deep, dark purple. I planted with some red/yellow tulips for contrast, and it was stunning. I highly recommend this bulb.

          This tulip is amazing! The last to bloom and well worth the wait. I planted them in containers in the backyard and they grew quite well, I also used the bulb fertilizer sold here and that helped. These flowers look great in a vase on the dinner table or out in the garden. Easy to grow for any level of gardener!

              What is a "Quality Bulb," and Why Does Bulb Quality Matter?

              Flower bulbs come in a wide variety of sizes. It is important to get the largest, best quality bulbs you can find. Larger bulbs help to ensure success, producing larger and stronger plants with more flowers.

              Several flower bulbs are part of the onion family, and because of this I like to use Onions as a representation of how important bulb size is. Which of the onions on your shelf go bad first? The smallest ones! Larger onions are more resilient, taking longer to dry out/rot and can withstand swings in temperature better. Flower bulbs are the same. Larger bulbs will withstand disease, draught, large amounts of moisture, and colder temperatures significantly better than the smaller ones.

              Here at American Meadows we are committed to providing you with the highest quality bulbs. This means we do everything we can to source the largest bulbs possible. Below is a comparison of bulbs purchased from three different retail stores:

              Each of the glass tubes contains 20 Dutch Master Daffodils. Starting from the left, the first tube is what is sold here at American Meadows, the middle tube was purchased at a local “Home Supply” box store, and the third is another online retailer. The difference is easily noticeable.

              The next picture is the same comparison, but with Tulip Bulbs:

              Again, our bulbs are quite a bit larger than other retailers.

              Other things to be aware of when it comes to bulb quality is making sure they are firm and without signs of external damage or cracking. Do your best to avoid bulbs that are already growing and have shoots or freshly grown roots. This is difficult when purchasing online, but if you are ordering through a reputable company, they should be checking for these things regularly.

              Next time you are looking to buy bulbs, think about how much time you put into planning and planting your garden and then anxiously waiting for your flowers to grow and bloom. Don’t be disappointed after all that effort by planting sub-par bulbs. Buy the largest, firmest, disease free bulbs you can afford, and you will have the best possible results.
