A Welcome Change of Pace for the Spring Garden!

Subtly fragrant!
An unusual color for the tulip garden, Kentucky Star is a midseason bloomer with a faint, sweet fragrance and large blooms of rich burgundy-red. Good for garden or vase, this hearty performer holds up in spring storms and always looks its best.

Reaching 30 to 40 inches high and 10 to 12 inches wide, this tulip sets thick, sturdy stems. The blooms open gradually, and keep their color well, thanks to substantial petal thickness.

Like all tulips, Kentucky Star appreciates full sunshine and very good soil drainage. It fares best in loose, rich garden soil, and should be planted deeply in warmer areas so that it receives adequate chilling hours during winter. In the deep south, it may be an annual.

Combine Kentucky Star with nearly every other color in the tulip garden for a bright show that lasts and lasts! Zones 3-8.
