Description
This triumph tulip has a commanding presence in the garden. The unique colors painting its petals add a note of distinction to a mixed border. You'll have plenty of time to enjoy your success with these fiery blooms, they're very long lasting. They grow on strong, sleek stems, which is nice for cut-flowers. Princess Irene Tulip grows to a mature height of 14-16", ideal for a front border or container planting. Bred by Van Reisen & Sons and introduced in 1949, it went on to win the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit in 1993. It's named for Princess Irene van Lippe-Biesterfeld, the Dutch princess known for her love of nature. Tulipa triumph 'Prinses Irene'

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate. You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate and tracking information.

At any time after you place your order you can check your order status on our website using your email or the account number found in your order confirmation email.

Please note that we cannot ship outside of the 48 contiguous states.
