More useful information about Triumph Tulip

These tulips have large, unfilled, simple, cup-shaped flowers in intense colours, often with contrasting edges or other patterns. They are particularly effective when you mix different varieties of different colours in the bed and in the vase to your liking. Triumph tulips bloom from mid to late spring, with the main flowering time being in April. These tulips are about 40 to 60 centimetres high and they have strong stems, making these varieties also excellent as cut flowers. In the garden, these types of tulip bulbs are especially beautiful when displayed together with early-flowering perennials.

Varieties of Triumph Tulips

Perhaps the loveliest of all yellow tulips is the Tulipa variety 'Stronggold', which dominates April in the perennial bed with its clear, sunny yellow colour. Those who like contrasts in the garden can combine the tulip 'Ronaldo' with its striking dark purple flowers, which are almost black in colour. No other combination will make the golden yellow of ‘Stronggold’ shine better. And the mysterious dark elegance of Tulipa 'Ronaldo' is even more intense along with the bright yellow. The best of all red triumph tulips that work best on their own is 'Prins Willem Alexander'. It has large, powerful, simple flowers that have a slightly orange border, giving them a tremendous fiery luminosity. A dreamy blue-coloured tulip is 'Lilac Love' which has lilac-coloured blending in with the blue of the petals. This simple April beauty is best combined with the pure white tulip 'Pays Bas'. This makes the blue cast in the garden looks almost a bit bluer. The most eye-catching of all triumph tulips is 'Gavota' with its purple flowers that have a strong yellow edge. This truly eye-catching flower bulb breeding provides plenty of Ah’s and Oh’s in every spring garden and it is a real show stealer!

Where Do Triumph Tulips Come From?

These varieties were created around 1920 as a cross between Darwin tulips and early flowering tulips. Their flowers are larger and their stems are longer than those of the early flowering tulips, from which they get their robustness. Above all, these tulips are characterised by their large, wide, simple, cup-shaped flower and the intensely bright colours. Add to that the strong stems and it’s no wonder that they are extremely popular cut flowers. They are also used frequently for commercial forcing. The Dutch breeder Zandbergen from Rijnsburg had received seeds of this cross from a gardener colleague from Haarlem, and because he first brought these new tulip hybrids to bloom, the triumph tulips were also originally called Zandbergen tulips.

Planting and Maintaining Tulips Properly

Like all tulips, triumph tulips prefer a sunny spot with permeable, nutrient-rich soil. A mix of loamy earth and sand is perfect. In a perennial edge, they look particularly effective in larger groups with contrasting colours, whereby in addition to commercially available mixtures, even your own mixtures are always attractive. They also look gorgeous when planted in a pot on a balcony or as a welcome greeting next to the front door. When planting, please take this into consideration. The individual bulbs should be set twice as deep into the soil as they are long. The distance between the individual bulbs should be somewhat irregular so that the groups look natural. The leaves of the triumph tulips are slightly wider and larger than other tulip hybrids. Therefore, the spacing should be a good 20 centimetres or a little more. After the flowering period, the peduncle should be cut off so that the flower bulbs do not waste any power producing seeds. The leaves must be left standing until they are completely withered. During this time, the nutrients return to the flower bulbs, which gain strength for the next year in the garden. Once the foliage has completely withered it can be cut away. The bulbs themselves remain in the ground. Alternatively, after the foliage has withered, the bulbs may also be dug up and stored in a dry, dark place until autumn.

Triumph Tulips as Cut Flowers

These tulips are very popular as cut flowers. If you have enough space, you should plant a number of them in the vegetable garden, which is then only used for cut flowers. Well suited for this purpose are colour-matched mixtures. These can then be regularly fertilised from budding to flowering so that the flowers are even stronger. Once they have withered, continue to fertilise for a while, as the flower bulbs store the energy for next year. Once completely withered, they can be dug up and stored in a dark and dry place so that the bed becomes free to plant summer vegetables.

For the use of tulips as cut flowers, please take note of this: they should be cut once they already show good colour, but the flowers should still be closed. It is best to harvest them early in the morning when the air is still cool. They will last longer that way. In the vase, you only need about 5 centimetres of water for the tulips, but it should be filled up regularly and the water should be changed. If you give them too much water, they wilt faster. In terms of mixtures, experiments with colours and varieties can also be tested here. Write down your perfect mixture in a garden diary so that you can remember it for the next garden year!
