Tulip Fostery King

Technically classified as a Giant Darwin Hybrid but behaving more like a Single Late, Fostery King is resonant blue-scarlet with warm golden-red petal edges, a high-contrast white base and striking dark garnet stems. When the sun shines through its white base, it appears like spotlights in the garden. Tulip Class: Giant Darwin Hybrid. Bulb size: 12 cm/up. Bloom time: May. HZ: 3-8. 24".PLEASE NOTE: In the Fall 2019 catalog on page 26, the photograph of Fostery King is incorrect: it is Tulip Caravelle. We are so very sorry for this error.

  • Single Late Tulips

    Also known as Darwin or Cottage Tulips and Scheepers Hybrids, Single Late Tulips are perhaps the most popular of all. These long, strong-stemmed Tulips are ideal for both cutting and mass border plantings due to their consistent and reliable performance. Offering an extensive rainbow of colors from white to near black, Single Late Tulips have large, shapely flowers. Scheepers Hybrids, often referred to as French Tulips, are prized for their large, chalice-shaped flowers and genetic vitality. All offspring of the ever-enchanting, tetraploid Tulip Mrs. John T. Scheepers, they include Avignon, Belle du Monde, Camargue, Dordogne, La Courtine, Maureen, Menton, Renown and Yosemite. Top size bulbs: at least 12 cm. Bloom time: May. Plant 6" to 8" deep and 6" apart. Horticultural zones 3-8. Height: 16" to 30" depending on the variety.
