Tulipa 'Yonina' - Lily Flowering Class Tulip

Overall Description

Yonina Tulips have what has to be one of the most striking appearances of all lily flowering tulips, if not all tulip varieties in general. Star shaped overall blooms are a bright cherry red color, with a dark fuschia-pink glow. Centers of each bloom are dark purplish blue, and have a delicate white starburst pattern.

The combination of hardiness, and color contrast, pattern, etc make Yonina Tulips a no-brainer choice for any area in need of a lower growing splash of color in spring. Great as a border, along walkways, foreground planting in front of taller evergreens or shrubs, and can even be used as a container, deck or patio garden selection.

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

We offer our Tulipa Yonina 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.
