Tulip ‘Best Yellow’ Darwin Hybrid (Golden Apeldoorn)
Darwin Hybrid Tulip ‘Best Yellow’ (Golden Apeldoorn)
These bright yellow beauties can definitely add a sunny blaze of color to any spring garden!
The large flowers are set atop sturdy 20 to 24 inch stems, making them useful as a cut flower.
Unlike most tulip varieties which don’t have good perennial tendencies, the Darwin Hybrids are better at returning for several years if given the right growing conditions.
Full sun and a planting depth of at least 5 inches or so, plus well draining soil are the keys to success.
You can also trim off the flower heads after they are done blooming so they don't waste energy making seed pods.
