Greigii tulips are a joy to have in a sunny garden. With blooms very large in proportion to the size of the plant, they work well in rock gardens and borders as well as potted arrangements. In full sun, the blooms open wide into cup-shaped flowers. When they are open, they can be more than 5 inches (12 cm.) across. As the sun passes, the petals fold up again for evening. The petals of Greigii tulip flowers are often pointed. They can be shades of white, pink, peach, yellow or red. You can also find flowers that are colored in two tones or streaked. The stems are not very long for tulips, averaging only 10 inches (25 cm.) tall. Each of the Greigii tulip bulbs will produce one stem topped by one flower.
