Tulips (Tulipa) are a genus of lily-like plants (Liliaceae). They are characterised by large six-petalled flowers. There are about 100 species in total, and they are grown only as ornamental plants in Lithuania, they do not grow wild. Tulips originate from southern Europe, North Africa and Asia (from Anatolia and Iran to China and Japan). The genus is most abundant in the Pamir and Hindu Kush mountains and the steppes of Kazakhstan.
The tulip is the national flower of Iran and Turkey, and tulip motifs are common in Persian and Turkish folk art.
Many ornamental varieties have been developed. Tulips are considered to be the “traditional” gift flowers along with roses, lilies, orchids and peonies.
What other bulbs can I combine tulips with?
Even the earliest tulips don’t have time to bloom with Crocus and Snowdrops. So there are many other bulbous flowers that flower in the second half of April and May. Early tulips, which flower in April, should be planted with ground flowers. Snowdrops, bluebells, pansies and scillas are suitable. Their blue, teal and white flowers contrast with the warm yellows and reds of tulips.
Such mixed flowerbeds are very atmospheric. Combine with the tulips that bloom in May, low-growing daisies (especially the varieties of the common daisy), spleenflowers, hyacinths and many daffodils. The variety of colours and varieties is truly enormous. Create either contrasting or close colour combinations.
The tulip leaves soon turn their natural green colour and buds start to form. If they appear prematurely, the plants are moved to a cooler place. This slows down the onset of flowering and tulips take a few days longer to flower.
Care. Do not forget that flowering plants also require some care. Tulips should be watered no more than twice a week in the first instance, and once a month they should be given a liquid fertiliser. It is also necessary to remove yellowing leaves, which waste the plant’s much-needed strength.
Tulips should have at least 6 hours of daylight for flowering. To keep them flowering longer, it is best to keep the tulip pot where there are no heating appliances. The room must be aired from time to time. This is best done in the morning when the air is cleaner and fresher.
