Tulip Greigii Peacock Mix
Tulipa greigii Peacock Mix is a captivating and colourful variety of tulip known for its unique and striking appearance. This mix features a range of tulip bulbs from the Greigii group, a category of tulips known for their distinctive characteristics. The mix typically includes shades of red, orange, yellow, and even bi-coloured varieties, creating a vibrant and eye-catching display.
One of the distinguishing features of Greigii tulips, including those in the ‘Peacock Mix,’ is their marbled and mottled foliage. The leaves are often attractively marked with patterns resembling the feathers of a peacock, which adds to the overall visual appeal of the plant. These lovely little tulips generally grow to around 25cm. This makes them suitable for planting in various garden settings, from borders and flower beds to containers and rock gardens.
Greigii tulips have an early flowering period, often appearing in gardens in early to mid-spring, depending on your climate and location. Their early bloom time makes them one of the first bursts of colour in the garden after winter. Greigii tulips, including those in the ‘Peacock Mix,’ are often appreciated for their hardiness and ability to return year after year in the right conditions. They have a reputation for naturalizing, which means they can multiply and spread over time, creating larger and more vibrant displays with each passing year.
Height: 20-25cm approx. Plant 15cm apart in a sunny position. Flowers in March-April.
