Late-Flowering Tulip Nightrider

New

Late-Flowering Tulip Nightrider

Petal for petal, Viridiflora tulips provide the most striking colorations in the garden or landscape. Our Nightrider Viridiflora is a blue-purple beauty with rich, grass-green flames that race up the outside of each petal. The contrasting colors are simply magnificent, especially when seen in mass plantings or even groups of three or five in the border or cutting garden. The cup-shaped blooms appear in May—late in the tulip season—and accent full sun to part shade sites with their vibrant colors and pretty form. Planted amid white or soft pink varieties, Nightrider's rich colors really pop! Choose sites in full sun to part shade for best results.
