'Orange Sunset' Greigii Tulip ~ "World's Largest Tulip!"

It really is the world's largest tulip!

Plant a few this fall and reap the kudos next spring...


The Giant 'Orange Sunset' tulip is deserving of its title... "World's Largest Tulip!" This Greigii Botanical tulip has 9-10" blooms, borne atop 8-12" stems. The beautiful striped foliage has the traditional "stitching" of other Kaufmanniana & Greigii hybrids, but the stunning flower size and glowing orange color set this one apart. It's excellent as a cut flower, as well as a striking spring accent for your garden. Plant the enormous bulbs in the fall and be amazed next spring... your garden will be the talk of the town!




We have these beauties planted in one of our display beds at the garden center, as well as in a nearby traffic island (and they do stop traffic!). Each spring, gardeners are amazed by these tulips, often placing an order for the following fall planting season... we gladly hold bulbs for fall planting and notify gardeners during September, upon the arrival of these gigantic bulbs.

Corliss Bros. Garden Center & Nursery is located at 31 Essex Road  
Ipswich, MA 01938. Or, give us a call at 978.356.5422.

'Orange Sunset' Greigii Tulips are currently in stock, but they 
sell quickly... call to make sure they'll be here when you 
go bulb shopping this fall.
