Description

If you enjoy flowers with spectacular details and a little element of surprise, you should grow Tulip 'Striped Crown'. This coronet or crown tulip flaunts intriguing curled petals in two-tone, some are more heavily rich red, and some are more cream with streaks and speckles of deep red. Plant them in a groups and the overall effect is like a perfectly-matched tulip combination, although it’s simply harmonious with itself! Enjoy watching the blooms unfurl and admiring the details on each uniquely-patterned petal.

Plant Tulip 'Striped Crown' in borders or in pots and enjoy the show in April. They’re incredibly easy to grow, yet spectacularly impressive—we couldn’t imagine a spring garden without a rewarding display of tulips, and these extra special blooms will make your garden really stand out from the crowd! Tulip 'Striped Crown' is interesting enough on its own, but if you’re thinking to add another element of colour, we recommend pairing this with near-black, sandy-yellow or intense purple tulips.
