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.

Viridiflora tulips - green tulips

Viridiflora tulips Green Love Lubera

Viridiflora tulips (simply translated: green tulips) are not green all over but are characterised by the vertical, green stripes in the flower pattern. The flowers of these Viridiflora tulip bulbs are therefore green mottled.

The unusual colour and pattern are not the only advantage of the so-called "green tulips", of which we offer some of the most beautiful varieties in the Lubera Garden Shop.



The advantages of Viridiflora tulips

  • They are late flowering
  • They are long flowering; with three weeks they have a really remarkable long flowering period
  • They are very persistent in the garden; they do not disappear after 2 to 3 years
  • They are excellent cut flowers

The origin of Viridiflora tulips


Viridiflora tulip bulbs have evolved from the botanical variety Tulipa viridiflora and simple late tulip species. A striking feature that has been preserved is that larger parts of the flower are coloured in striking but very natural shades of green. Particularly attractive are the pointed petals, which resemble the lily flowering tulips from our Lubera assortment.




The different varieties of these tulips still grow at different heights, so that when planted in spring flower beds or on the terrace in tubs, they can be quite extravagant and pleasantly varied. And to ensure that your garden soon has a colourful sea of flowers in the flower beds and borders, all you need is a skilful planting, some care for your tulips and, of course, a few hands full of strong bulbs from our current range of flower bulbs.


Suitable location


The vast majority of the tulip species commonly found in this country will thrive in any garden soil, as long as its structure is not too heavy and above all permeable. Not suitable are places where the rain cannot run off and those areas of the garden where the soil is excessively acidic. We recommend a pH value between 6 and 7 in the location for Viridiflora tulips. If the quality of the garden soil is poor, it is best to add a mixture of compost and sand (approx. 5:1) before planting the bulbs. However, fresh fertiliser, such as manure, is not at all tolerated by the generally undemanding steppe plants. If possible, avoid planting a green tulip where varieties of flower bulbs have already been planted before. Even the highest quality soil tends to become tulip tired over time so that a crop rotation is recommended in such locations.


How are Viridiflora tulips planted?


Plant them about 8 to 10 cm deep and as early as possible, ideally between September and October. This allows the bulbs to develop stable roots before the onset of winter. Tulip varieties, especially with later flowers, grow and thrive best at temperatures around +9°C. The planting depth for Viridiflora tulip bulbs should be twice to three times the bulb size. And: even if the top and bottom of the bulbs are not always immediately visible at first sight, it is still essential to place the bulbs in the soil with the tip pointing upwards so that the perennials will actually flower next spring. We recommend that you keep a distance of 15 to 20 cm between the plants.




Even if these tulips are considered undemanding, a handful of organic fertiliser or our ‘Frutilizer® Compound Fertiliser Plus’ may be enough - in early spring. Mature compost soil is just as suitable - good food for the small creatures that are of great importance for the constant regeneration of your garden soil. 


The long-term, perennial cultivation of Viridiflora tulips


The bulbs of a tulip may remain in the soil for several years, but they prefer a summer dry and somewhat sandy location - for example between perennials and roses or in front of hedges and similar shrubs. Additional watering in the summer should be avoided. Otherwise, green tulips are completely hardy, although a warming blanket of leaves or bark mulch may well be appropriate in exposed locations in the garden.
