Description

18-22” tall x 4-6” wide. Fringed tulips are adored for their elegant goblet shape and exotic-looking detail. The soft purple-blue petals of Cummins Fringed Tulip (Tulipa ‘Cummins’) pair gracefully with pure white tulips that emphasize the delicate fringe. Plant this beauty in sweeps among smooth-petaled bulbs for soft contrast in beds and borders. Cummins Fringed Tulip provides maximum visual impact when planted in groups of ten or more, or mixed with other bulbs in the garden. Also try tucking bulbs into containers and patio pots beneath winter plantings for easy spring color. Flowers are long-lasting in the garden or vase. Tulips require little care when planted in full sun and well-drained soils. ‘Cummins’ tolerates a range of soil types, but do not like wet feet. Plant on mounds or berms in heavy soils. Dry summer soils are key to perennializing Tulip bulbs.
