Viridiflora Tulips: How Green Does Your Garden Grow?


While green blooms are relatively common in the plant world, they can be difficult to spot in the garden. But when green combines with other floral colours, it suddenly turns into a striking and unusual feature. That’s just what Viridiflora Tulips do. They come in a veritable rainbow of colours, but they all have one thing in common: green streaks that contrast with the dominant colour of the petals.

Tulip Spring Green

Botanical Latin can sometimes seem a little unfathomable, but “viridiflora” is fairly simple to interpret. It basically means “green flowers”, but as we’ve just seen, Viridiflora tulip flowers are more exciting than that!

Two of Our Favourite Viridiflora Tulips

Growing tulips is much easier than you might think. You only need a sunny spot with well-drained soil. That, and choosing the perfect planting time to get your bulbs in the ground ensure success. Bulbs already contain the embryo of their next bloom, and with perfectly-groomed, Dutchgrown bulbs, there isn’t much else you need to do to ensure a fabulous show of flowers. A bit of extra watering if conditions are very dry is all you need for success. Browse our range of Tulips today, and don’t forget to give those Viridiflora Tulips due consideration – you’ll be glad you did!

  • Tulip Spring Green is a delightful white Viridiflora Tulip. You can easily see the pattern of green markings that give it its name, and the overall impression is as crisp and fresh as a fine spring day. It looks gorgeous offset against a green background planting, looks stunning planted en masse, or can be used as a cool contrast when combined with brighter coloured flowers. However, the tranquil combination of green and white is our personal favourite.

Tulip Night Rider

  • Tulip Night Rider, on the other hand, insists on being the star of the show. Its green markings are bolder, and they contrast fantastically with the purple petals. And before you say you’d never think of combining those two colours, do take a look at what happens when nature does! Because of its darker colours, Tulip Night Rider should be planted against a background of silver foliage or be combined with a light colour like Tulip Spring Green to enhance the overall visual effect.

More Stunners!

Your Viridiflora Tulip options are bountiful. You can take your garden design creativity to new heights with these handpicked Viridiflora Tulip varieties.

  • Tulip Green Wave - This variety has to be seen to be believed! Frilly, curly petals in a gorgeous shade of soft lilac make the perfect partner for the apple-green streaks that adorn the flowers.

  • Tulip China Town - If delicate china-pink is your colour of choice, the distinctive viridiflora markings will really bring that colour to the fore!

Tulip Pimpernel

  • Tulip Pimpernel - Green and red are opposite on the colour wheel and create a striking contrast.  With petals as red as the name implies, Pimpernel’s green streaks serve to enhance the overall effect.

Tulip Golden Artist

  • Tulip Golden Artist - Warm sunshine gold with a hint of peach would be pretty enough on its own. Add the streak of green, and you have a masterwork.
