Black Tulips

Perhaps not as dark as some of our black tulips tulip Canyon fits nicely into the category of dark, near black tulips. No tulip is truly black but a very deep maroon, purple or red. Incertain lights they can look completely black. When the sunlight shines through the petals and you’ll see their true colour.


What is the appeal of dark tulip bulbs?

Dark tulips absorb UV light so they are not very visible to pollinators. But you can’t deny their powerful presence in the garden. For many years these bulbs have been an essential addition to flower arrangements mixed with coppers, deep pinks and other dramatic flowers. They add instant opulence to a display.

How to care for my tulip bulbs

These tulips bulbs will grow in most conditions but as they are quite large flowers we would recommend planting them in beds or very large containers. 

Double tulips require a lot of energy to produce a large flower, it is unlikely they will flower again next season. You can remove the flower and seed heads and let the foliage die naturally to help the bulbs put on more size before they go dormant in the summer.
