‘Charmeur’ Tulip

Tulipa 'Charmeur'

TEW-lih-pah Audio

Tulipa ‘Charmeur’ features leaves with curled yellow edges and 18-inch-tall white-rimmed dark rosy blooms. The color combination may be a bit garish for some, but it will certainly brighten up container plantings in a drab doorway.

Noteworthy CharacteristicsThis is a Triumph tulip, which is a division of large-flowered, midseason hybrid tulips.

CareGrow 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.

ProblemsBulb and root rot, gray mold, slugs, snails, aphids, nematodes, voles.
