Let the sun shine! With a cheerful appearance and a warming, two-toned palette, Dutch Pioneer delivers a sizzling pop of color and style to typical springtime displays. Massive, fully double 6½" blooms of purple-red feature wide, yellow edges that show off its eye-catching fringe beautifully. We suggest planting Dutch Pioneer in groups or clusters throughout a sun-filled border or feature bed for extra pizzazz. Interspersed with traditional red tulips, these striking bicolor blooms create an even more spectacular presentation. Because the lush, double blooms are so large, it is recommended that bulbs be planted in a sunny, yet protected site, away from severe rain and high wind.
