Tulipa 'Tom Pouce' - Single Triumph Class Tulip


Overall Description


Tom Pouce is a Triumph Class Tulip with basically a tri color appearance. Flower base is bright yellow, changing to a bright almost neon pink, and then fading gently to a soft pastel pink towards the edges of each petal - three distinct color shades in one flower!! Tom Pouce was originally discovered as a sport of Dynasty Tulip variety. Reaches a mature height of 18" - 20" - makes a great border, accent, or colorful addition to any flower garden.

Best planted at a depth of 5" - 6" anytime in mid fall thru winter. Suggested planting is 3 - 4 bulbs per sq ft for good density once sprouted & blooming. Tom Pouce Tulips are mid spring bloomers, with blooming beginning in mid April in warmer zones - slightly later in colder areas of the country.

We offer our Tulipa 'Tom Pouce' Tulip bulbs in a 4 pk, and guarantee them 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.
