Casa Grande Tulip

Big bold satiny blooms, the Casa Grande Tulip (Tulipa ‘Casa Grande’) are early-flowering, vibrant tomato-red Tulips with interesting dark hearts hidden inside each huge bloom! Held upon sturdy straight stems, Casa Grande will create an exotic display in your spring ephemeral garden – helping you shake off the winter doldrums in a hurry!

Award-winning, Casa Grande feeds hummingbirds and pollinators that arrive in your garden early in the growing season, and fill luscious bouquets with radiant orange-red blossoms! Once the flowers fade, you’ll enjoy the blue-green leaves mottled in dark burgundy spots, streaks, and stripes! These vase-shaped clumps of foliage hold well into the summer, but then Tulips appreciate some protection from later-emerging perennials and shrubs foliage, shading them from the summer sun.

Greigii Tulips originated in Turkistan and have been around since the late 1800s, Casa Grande Tulip retains the family bowl-shaped blooms and foliage with unique interest! Cold-hardy throughout USDA growing zones 3 to 7, Casa Grande grows at least 22 inches tall when in bloom and is incredibly easy to grow and care for!

Tips for Care:

Tulip Bulbs require full sun and well-drained soil. Appreciating afternoon shade in warmer hardiness zones where the sun is intense. Any soil type is suitable so long as it is not soggy. Plant in the ground with pointed ends up 3 times as deep as the bulbs are tall. Fall-planted bulbs need well-drained soil with moderate moisture needs. Add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Deadhead after flowers fade, but let the leaves remain so they can make food for the bulb and next year’s flowers! Not only are they strong, but Tulips also have incredible endurance. The blooms endure through spring showers, occasional sleet, and unexpected days of hot sunshine.

  • Full Sun For Strongest Growth
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead After Flowers Fade & Prune Mounds After Leaves Yellow
  • Deer Seldom Bother Them
