It looks just like a painting!

These tulips have the gorgeous petal shades to thank for their name. The striking colours look as if they have been applied with a paintbrush, which is why they have been named after Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669), one of the greatest Dutch painters of all time. These tulips are quite exceptional in the garden and are also very good for cutting. They wouldn't look amiss in one of Rembrandt's paintings either.

Planting

As soon as possible after receiving the 'Rembrandt' tulip bulbs they can be planted in the garden, pots or planters. Otherwise, do store in a frost-free area. Potted bulbs are not usually frost resistant. Plant the bulbs in a hole three times as deep as the height of the bulbs - a 5 cm bulb goes in a 15 cm deep hole. The planting distance between the 'Rembrandt' tulips is about 10 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs, point up. Refill the hole and avoid walking over the planting area. Plant the tulips bulbs individually with a small trowel or a special bulb planter. For larger areas, make a lwider hole to accommodate several bulbs. The more bulbs planted, the greater effect the flowers will give. Plant the tulips in groups of at least 6 bulbs, or scatter 25-50 bulbs evenly over the border or flower bed.

Potted 'Rembrandt' tulips

'Rembrandt' tulips grow well in pots or planters for the patio or decking. Make sure you use fresh potting compost and put a layer of gravel or hydro-pellets in the base of the pot. Plant the bulbs in a hole three times as deep as the height of the bulbs - a 5 cm bulb goes in a 15 cm deep hole. The planting distance of the 'Rembrandt' tulips in a pot is about 7 cm. For extra colour in the pot, plant low growing anemones just above the tulip bulbs, which will flower beautifully below the 'Rembrandt' tulips.

Care

The flowers of the 'Rembrandt' tulips are at their best in the first year. That’s why we recommend adding new and extra bulbs to make your borders and pots even more colourful, each year. 'Rembrandt' tulips grow best in loose, well-drained soil in a spot in full sun. To protect potted bulbs from frost, move the pot to a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap. Water during dry periods. Tulip bulbs that have not yet been planted in the garden are sensitive to frost but once planted out in the garden, they are perfectly hardy.
Tulips planted in pots are more sensitive and will need to be protected in one of the following ways:
  • Store your potted tulips in a frost-free area that doesn't get too warm - they do need the cold.
  • Wrap the pot(s) in bubble wrap for extra protection.
  • If you line the inside of their pot(s) with bubble wrap before adding soil and planting your bulbs, your tulips will already have some protection.

Extra

The flamed and striped flower petals on these 'Rembrandt' tulips are truly spectacular. In fact, these special tulips were enormously popular in the Netherlands in the Golden Age. The picturesque appearance is worthy of the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669). Our mix contains a lovely mix of red, yellow and white petals with flamed red stripes.
