Tulipa 'Budlight' - Lily Flowering Class Tulip


Overall Description


Budlight Dutch Tulip is a lily flowering class tulip with elongated, slender blooms that have a very pronounced flame like tip to each petal. Color is a bright, sunny lemon yellow at the base, with pure white flames towards the tips. Stunning color that will brighten up any garden / flower bed area, and will contrast well with darker shaded tulips, or other flower species. Works great in borders, along walkways, in mass plantings, and does well in container gardening for use on patios & decks - even window boxes!

Best planted at a depth of 5" - 6" anytime in mid fall thru winter. Suggested planting is 5 - 6 bulbs per sq ft for good density once sprouted & blooming. Budlight Tulips are mid spring bloomers, with blooming beginning in mid / late April in warmer zones - slightly later in colder areas of the country.

We offer our Tulipa 'Budlight' Dutch Tulip bulbs at a per bulb price - be sure to check out the quantity discounts offered if you need several bulbs. Guaranteed to be of excellent size & quality.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
