Tulip - La Belle Epoque

NOTE. Pre-purchase only, delivery in early September

The crown jewel of all tulip varieties on this planet. With its enchanting floral attire, this variety is incredibly sought after and hard to come by today. It’s not surprising considering it is the most beautiful of all tulip varieties. It received its name from the peaceful French era when fabric and tulle were abundant. A fitting name considering the incredible fullness and form of the flower. There is no doubt that it is a fantastic cut flower, and the amazing thing is that it becomes more and more beautiful as it opens up. It blooms for a long time and holds up well in a vase, which are contributing factors to its popularity.

It is difficult to define visually what magic is, but we at Florea would like to say that La Belle Epoque is as close as it gets!

    Perennial flower bulbs

    Do we have perennial flower bulbs, and how does it work?

    All tulips in our assortment can bloom for multiple years if given the right conditions. Normally, we usually say that they are one-year bloomers, so if they bloom for several years, it's just a bonus. This applies to almost all tulips. No tulip is truly perennial; instead, what happens is that if you provide the tulip bulb with the right conditions, it will form a new side bulb during the flowering period, which will bloom the following year.
    However, daffodils are usually recurring. They are a safer choice if you want recurring blooms. Most daffodil varieties also have the pleasant characteristic of spreading and multiplying!
