Tulipa 'Sorbet' - Single Late Blooming Tulip


Overall Description


Sorbet is a 5-time award winning single blooming tulip, that has become one of the most sought after varieties...…….with most customers planting them year after year after year. Produces massive flowers of pure bright white, with swirling, twisting, neon reddish pink "flames". Each flower looks like it has been hand painted, with mass plantings of Sorbet being among the most eye-catching of any flower display I've ever seen! Hardy & vigorous with strong stems - sure to become one of your favorites once you see these beauties in person.

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. Sorbet Tulips are mid to late spring bloomers, with blooming beginning in mid/late April in warmer zones - slightly later in colder areas of the country.

--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.
