Tulip 'Renown Unique' is a true gem. One of the last tulips to flower, it is definitely worth the wait. Full, peony-shaped, watermelon-pink flowers have yellow anthers. The outer tips of the petals are brushed with green.
A jewel in any garden’s crown, these large peony-style tulips have been a bestseller since we introduced them in Spring 2018. Tulip ‘Renown Unique’ is one of the last tulips to flower – a great example of ‘saving the best till last’. These magnificent, tall blooms work equally well in the garden or as a cut flower. They also have a light fragrance.

All spring-flowering bulbs must be planted in the fall.
Most tulips are good for horticultural zones 3 through 7. The optimal planting time is when night-time temperatures are 4-10 C (40-50 F), and soil temperatures are 13 C (55 F) or below.
In warmer climates, chill bulbs in the refrigerator (NOT the freezer) in darkness for 10-14 weeks before planting, starting mid-October. In horticultural zone 7, you can even pre-chill your bulbs for 8-10 weeks in case of mild winter. Flower bulbs require consistent temperatures during the pre-chilling period.
