Tulips show us that spring really should be considered as three seasons, rather than just one. Smart gardeners who plan a succession of spring flowers will always choose a few Single Late Tulips for their spring garden palette. As their name suggests, they burst into glorious bloom just when you thought the spring Tulip season was over, seeing the spring out and welcoming the summer in a blaze of glory. There’s an amazing selection of colours, and the long-stemmed blooms are sure to make a big impression. This category of tulips was made up by choosing the late flowering Darwins, Cottage, Old Breeder and Scheeper hybrids, all of which share similar characteristics and flowering times.
