Plant Finder: about Tulipa turkestanica

Common names

Turkish tulip, Tulip


Tulipa turkestanica (Turkish tulip). The flowers will appear in clusters of up to 12 blooms on one stem. They are star-shaped and creamy white with orange centres and dark anthers. Before planting them, you need to make sure you prepare your soil well with additions of compost or humus and deep digging. Good drainage is essential for the tubers which should be planted 5 inches deep and 3-4 inches apart.


They are mostly fully hardy and will require a sunny position with well drained soil and will appreciate a summer baking. In cool wet areas bulbs may be lifted, when the leaves have died down, and stored in a dry place for replanting in autumn. They will need cold winters. You should plant in the late autumn in a sunny position.
