Description

Buttercup yellow with a flush of apricot, Tulip 'Bright Gem' is one of the most striking of the botanical tulips, but it’s not only its looks that you'll love. Although all tulips are perennials, most of the hybrid varieties are carefully prepared over a period of years to produce one stunning display of bloomsthereafter, you won't get the same results, even if you keep your bulbs. But this natural beauty isn't as fussy as its aristocratic cousins.

Be sure to lift and store your Tulip batalinii 'Bright Gem' bulbs during their dormancy or leave them in place and see if they'll decide to make themselves at home in your garden.
