Lubera stops plant deliveries to the UK
Due to Brexit, we are not able to deliver to the UK. We are working on a solution on how we can continue to bring a wide range of Lubera plants to the UK and directly to our customers' homes in the future. However, such a solution will not be available before 2022 or 2023.

Lily flowering tulips

Lily flowering tulip Lubera

Lily flowering tulips will cast a special spell over you. Not only because of their unusually slender flowers but also because of their tapering petals, which are elegantly curved backwards. Although these delightful tulip bulbs make a rather delicate impression, they are nevertheless quite robust.

   
 
   
 

More information about lily flowering tulips

 

It is not uncommon for such particularly popular varieties such as the lily flowering tulip 'White Triumphator' to still show their usual constant flowering abundance in the garden after more than five years. Long and slender on high stems - this characteristic appearance makes lily flowering tulip varieties almost unmistakable and, with growth sizes of up to 70 cm, they are guaranteed to be highly visible. Provided that these natural beauties are given a tulip friendly location in your garden, you will be rewarded with an extremely long flowering period that lasts several weeks. Although the tulip is reluctant to get its feet wet permanently, our lily flowering varieties are particularly rainproof and, despite their admirable height of growth, they remain firmly established. And lily flowering tulips retain these enduring qualities even after they have been cut (expertly at an angle instead of straight) when they are kept in decorative vases for many days as spring-like room decorations in full bloom.

 

 

The advantages of lily flowering tulips

 

  • Slender, filigree flowers

  • Suitable for cutting with a long vase life
  • Extremely long flowering time over several weeks

 

Where does the name 'lily flowering tulip' come from?

 

Since both tulips and lilies belong to the lily family, the name is a bit of a tautology. No wonder that two species can sometimes resemble each other if they belong to the same family of lily plants. The comparison was probably mainly meant to refer to the special characteristic of the lily flowering tulips, namely that their petals bend elegantly backwards as if they had to stretch briefly when they woke up.

 

'Colourful is my favourite colour'

 

And this saying of the famous German architect Martin Gropius was finally also motivation enough for us to offer our customers a colourful mixture of the most beautiful and long-lasting lily flowering tulips in our Lubera Shop. So why don't you just go along with it in a colourful way as well?

  • 10 Lily flowering tulips 'White Triumphator': our Tulipa 'White Triumphator' is an elegant, long-flowering tulip with long, pointed and lancet-shaped sepals in a fascinating pure white colour. This variety is a favourite in the garden and it can also be used to make stunningly beautiful bouquets when it flowers in May. The plants of this tulip grow 65 to 70 cm high and are ideal for mixed and perennial borders.
  • 10 ‘Fly Away’ lily flowering tulips: The 'Fly Away' tulip transforms any perennial bed into a reddish-yellow sea of flames in the spring. The unique colour contrast between the bright red petals and their golden yellow edges is particularly captivating. No, 'Fly Away' is not meant literally, the plants will certainly stay where they are and as a graceful appearance when they sway timidly with the first spring breeze!
  • 10 lily flowering tulips 'West Point': Our perennial tulip 'West Point' appears in time for May and enchants its owners with a primrose yellow calyx and strikingly recurved tips and medium green, lance-like leaves. In beds, tubs, on balconies and terraces, the plants, which grow up to 60 cm tall, develop an impressive radiance when they are stretched out in the spring sun.

 

Planting

 

We have briefly summarised the most important tips when planting lily flowering tulips:

  • Tulip bulbs need well-drained soil. Heavy soil can easily be improved before planting with a mixture of decayed compost and sand and, if necessary, a portion of starting fertiliser.
  • Every lily-flowering tulip needs a planting hole that is twice as deep as the bulb is wide. If the soil is heavy loamy or damp, do not plant quite as deep. Before planting the bulb, a drainage layer of sand or fine gravel should be worked into the bottom of the pit.
  • Be sure to plant the bulbs of these tulips in the planting hole with the root side (which may not be visible at first sight) facing downwards and turn them a little to and fro, which makes it much easier for the fine roots to come into contact with the garden soil. 
  • If possible, improve the excavated material by adding a little sand and self-generated compost.
  • To prevent the bulbs from drying out, the planting area must be watered moderately.
  • It has proven to be a good idea to mark the location of new tulips so that you still know exactly where the bulbs are in the ground even after a few months.

 

Planting in pots & bowls?

 

If you use planters to put bulbs in, it is essential to use sufficiently large pots for the particularly tall varieties. On extremely windy locations and terraces, this tulip should be secured against bending over with a wooden stick or bamboo split if necessary. There are two possibilities for planting: either plant several planters according to their size, each with three to four bulbs of the same tulip variety. The tulips that are currently in flower could then be moved to the foreground alternately in the spring, or you could combine different bulbs in a single container of sufficient size.
