Pretty Prince Tulip
One of the earliest Tulips, and certainly one of the most beautiful and elegant!
Plant 'Pretty Prince' in a sunny spot with a neutral pH (6-6.5) and excellent drainage. Compacted or heavy clay soils tend to hold standing water, so amend these with grit, compost, or soil conditioner. Hailing from the Dutch bulb market, this Tulip is adapted to serious winters, and requires a bit of cold weather for proper vernalization.
Plant 'Pretty Prince' in the fall, about 8 inches deep. Dig the hole even deeper so that you can add some grit like kitty litter or crushed gravel. This grit will help you achieve the drainage that is vital for tulip beds, and will also deter pests like rodents, which love to eat the bulbs. Water the bulbs in after planting, to help them break out of dormancy, but afterwards 'Pretty Prince' prefers dry conditions, and only needs watered if the weather becomes very hot and dry. A carefree and exceptionally beautiful tulip, 'Pretty Prince' will become a blessing in your garden! Pack of 10 bulbs. Zones 3 to 8.
