Columbus is a real wow factor tulip with big, double flowers in deep pink with white-tipped petals. When the flowers open they easily get up to 7 to 10 centimeters in diameter. If you pick the tulips for the vase they will slowly open and easily fill up the vase with just a few flowers.
The tulips we offer are very disease-resistant and grown without chemicals by a Dutch family with a love for nature. We decided to offer these clean tulips to help support their transition to a less harmful tulip industry.

How to plant tulips:
Plant tulip bulbs in well-draining soil. If your garden is too wet the bulbs can start to rot in winter. make sure your garden or field is not flooded for multiple days after heavy rain.
The moment your tulips will bloom is very dependant on spring weather. Tulip Columbus on average blooms at the beginning of spring in The Netherlands. If spring is very cold the tulips will wait for better weather (just like us!) before they show their beautiful blooms.
If you want to use your tulips as cut flowers, make sure you plant your bulb deep. This way you extend the stem length.
Tulips need an extended period of cold weather before they start blooming.
