The Tulip 'Big Chief', 'Tulipa darwin hybrid', a fall planted bulb, displays an unusual flower that is rosy salmon with a silvery glow and yellow base. The huge, perfectly shaped, long-lasting bloom is borne atop a thick, sturdy stem and will multiply year after year. Plant tulips in beds of 25 to 50 for a spectacular spring show. Combine with taller perennials for continuous color. These tulips bloom in mid spring for a 3 week period.For the best effects, plant the bulbs in clusters of 5 to 15 bulbs of one variety, or scatter clusters throughout the garden or flower border. Tulips do best in well-drained soil. It is advisable not to plant tulips in the same location in the garden year after year. If possible, plant in a somewhat sheltered location. These tulips are excellent for warmer climatic zones. Tulips are excellent for mass planting, cut flowers, and borders.
