The Queensland Tulips have got to be some of the most unique tulips I have ever seen. Enjoy a few creative photos and some tulips growing tips on this post.
About Queensland Tulips
The Queensland Tulip has a double fringe with rose-red petals accent with light pink ruffles. The edges on this tulip are serrated giving it a super romantic feel. Mature blooms will show off at 5 inches large presentation that will last best in a cool location. Queensland grows up to 12″-14″ tall and usually starts showing off in the landscape in late spring.
DO NOT leave the cut flowers in direct sun even indoors.
I recommend growing this bulb by planting in the landscape in late Autumn. Be sure that soil is sandy and doesn’t hold too much water because they will not do well. This variety seems to grow best outside in my zone 5b. The biggest challenge is to plant in an area where the deers can not get this plant. The deer will eat this one up QUICK!

Do you grow tulips to cut and bring indoors to enjoy as cut flowers? In the past, I have shared how easy it is to force your own bulbs so be sure to check out those posts. I would love to hear from you so be sure to connect on my website. Have you grown Queensland Tulips or maybe you have them in your landscape now – do tell!
Happy Tulip Growing,
