Tulip (Tulipa 'New Design')
TEW-lih-pah
Genus:  Tulipa
Tulipa ‘New Design’ (1974) has pink-bordered leaves and silvery pink, 14- to 20-inch-tall blooms flushed yellow with pale fuchsia tips. This bulb is easygoing and long-lived.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  This is a Triumph tulip, which is a division of large-flowered, midseason hybrid tulips.
Care:  Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full or afternoon sun. Use them in containers or raised beds if soil drains poorly. Plant to a depth of two and a half times the height of the bulb. In regions warmer than Zone 8, bulbs will need a cold treatment (40° to 45°F for 8 to 10 weeks).
Propagation:   For more bulbs, lift plants in summer and remove the offsets (small lateral bulblets). In fall, replant the bulbs and offsets and fertilize with low-nitrogen fertilizer.
Problems:  Bulb and root rot, gray mold, slugs, snails, aphids, nematodes, voles.
