While late-flowering can seem like a negative feature to some, long-stemmed French tulips are worth the wait. Their later bloom time lengthens the tulip season when planted alongside earlier-flowering varieties. As your early tulips and daffodils fade, these beauties steal the show with their long stems and glowing blooms. We chose these varieties for their similar bloom times, as they create harmonious displays in cutting gardens and bouquets. This set includes: Dordogne, Maureen, and Menton. All varieties have very long stems for cutting.
