March - April height 4"- 8" (10 -20 cm)
The wild tulip Tarda is the lowest of the botanical tulips, it stands firm with thick leaves. She has a lot of pollen, and even ants get it ... well, actually. Nectar too? They like sweets. Do they take the pollen to their nest ..?
The nice thing about flower bulbs early in the spring is that they attract all kinds of life and there is always something to discover. Also for children: precisely because it is so close and clearly visible through the bright colors.
Tulipa Tarda is the earliest of all botanical tulips and also the earliest flower bulb after the crocuses. In the transition to April bloomers such as grapes, the tarda is a bit indispensable actually.
Highly recommended for beekeepers, and for anyone who wants to lend a helping hand to bees and bumblebee hens in the garden.
