An artist’s palette of color, the salmon-rose flowers of ‘Artist’ glow with shades of peach, dusky purple and flashes of green that create the distinctive characteristics of a Viridiflora Tulip. The substantial, sculpted blossoms, with their pointed petals, add elegance for long-lasting color in the garden or indoors for room-brightening bouquets, with blooms lasting up to 3 weeks! This exotic creature will naturalize readily in your garden if the flowers are allowed to remain and are not cut. The term Viridiflora is derived from the Latin words virdis meaning green and flos meaning flower.
Plant in sun-part shade, 6” deep and 4-5” apart in well-draining soil. Hardy to Zone 3.
