Tulip of the Week: Peppermint Stick

Tulipa Peppermint Stick Tulip Fluwel Flower Bulbs

Creator: W. van Lierop & Zonen (a Dutch plant nursery) 
Registration date: November 30, 1998
Cultivar Group: Miscellaneous Group

With many around the world celebrating different holidays, it felt like a good time to pick a rather festive Tulip - the aptly named "Peppermint Stick". Created by long-time flower nursery W. van Lierop & Zonen, it blends red and white colors in a tall, thin shape (coming in at a height of 20-30 cm or 8-12 inches). Interestingly, it strongly resembles a well known Tulip known as "Clusiana" which, while beautiful, is extremely difficult to grow and therefore very difficult to find. The Peppermint Stick, in contrast, has allowed gardeners around the world to experience and share this beautiful flower.

We are working in partnership with the KAVB to highlight the incredible variety of Tulips by sharing different flowers every week. The KAVB (Royal General Association for Bulb Culture), established in 1860, today acts as the international registration authority for all Tulips (along with several other flowers), and works to protect and support bulb growers around the world.
