Tulip Black Hero is one of the rare tulip flowers that look magnificent on their own but also promotes the colours of other tulips it is planted with. This exceptional tulip variety is a stunning addition to any landscape, showcasing a mesmerizing blend of darkness and vibrancy. 

It is the double form of one of the biggest selling tulips ‘Tulip Queen of Night’. An extremely well known and dependable single late tulip. Black Hero borrows the colour of Queen of Night and adds in a flower head packed full of petals. These are often referred to as Peony flowering tulips due to the billowing shape and arrangement of the petals. Its lustrous blooms are elegantly shaped, creating a striking contrast against the lush green foliage. Each flower stands tall and proud on sturdy stems, making them perfect for both indoor arrangements and outdoor displays.

Our premium Tulip Black Hero bulbs are carefully selected to ensure optimal growth and abundant blossoms. When choosing tulip bulbs it is best to go for a bigger size bulb, particularly for fancier or larger tulips. The bulb provides food for the flower, the bigger the bulb the more reliable and impressive the blossom will be. 

 Plant them in well-draining soil, expose them to ample sunlight, and watch as these remarkable tulips transform your garden into a captivating oasis.

Tulip Black Hero is a versatile flower that lends itself to a myriad of landscaping possibilities. Create dramatic focal points by planting them in clusters, borders, or along walkways.
