Consider planting with later blooming perennials as the bulbs go dormant for the rest of the growing season.
Reminiscent of a dazzling scoop of vanilla white ice cream atop a strawberry cone, the Ice Cream Tulip brightens any garden, landscape or floral bouquet. A late-flowering beauty, these will stretch your tulip season into late spring, long after most tulip varieties have finished for the year. Your Ice Cream Tulip bulbs should be planted in early spring or fall, in an area receiving full sun to partial shade. Plant your tulip flower bulbs 3 - 6 inches apart and six inches deep in well-drained, loosened soil and water thoroughly. Tulip flower bulbs fare well when companion planted with later blooming perennials. These double flowering tulips reach a height of 18-to-24 inches. The resulting bloom is a delightful 4-inch double flowering tulip blossom on a long, sturdy stalk surrounded by gray-green lance-shaped leaves. When your tulips have stopped blooming for the season, allow the foliage to die back naturally, as this feeds the bulb for the winter. This double flowering tulip's white-on-pink blooms are eye catching and elegant. They make a colorful addition to garden borders, make excellent container plants and are prized in cut-flower arrangements. Blue-ribbon winners in any floral display, these exotic Ice Cream tulip bulbs are perennials that will continue to produce gorgeous blooms year after year.
