Tulipa 'Candy Prince' - Early Spring Single Blooming Class Tulip


Overall Description


Candy Prince is an early blooming Dutch tulip variety producing ice, well formed blooms of very soft lavender with a lilac / pinkish glow to them. When planted in groups, and in full bloom, these beauties often can look like puffs of cotton candy sitting atop of their sturdy stems. Adds a softening glow to any border, foreground planting, flower beds, even container gardening. Sprouts up early, and strong!

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. Candy Prince Tulips are early spring bloomers, with blooming beginning in early April in warmer zones - slightly later in colder areas of the country.

We offer our Tulipa 'Candy Prince' 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.
