Canadian Celebration Tulip

Ok, ok its hard to get too excited about bulbs. Well... this Fall we have a treat for you! As you may or may not know, Canada celebrates its 150th Birthday in 2017. It’s time to show our pride for this beautiful, generous, and kind nation of many cultures. What better way than to plant spring flowering bulbs in patriotic colours?

Tulip Canadian Celebration (syn. Tulip Happy Generation) is both regal and festive for the occasion. Each petal of these enormous, long lasting ivory white blossoms are emblazoned with flames that resemble maple leaves – Canada’s national emblem.

Arising from a hint of yellow at the tulip’s base, the flames turn scarlet red. Silvery white edging on the leaves adds to the visual impact, especially when planted in groups of 5-7 bulbs or more.

Canadian Celebration blooms mid-spring, grows to 50 cm (20”) tall, and its sturdy stems hold blossoms upright to withstand wind and rain. It will perform best in full sun, rich and fertile, well-draining soils. Plant in garden beds, borders, or containers. Canadian Celebration will look gorgeous and begin the festivities in your neighbourhood!
