As a florist based at the South Melbourne Market, we have a wide range of tulips available in store and online for delivery across Melbourne throughout late Autumn/Winter. Tulips are a popular cut flower in the cooler months due to their vibrant colours, variety of shapes and sizes, and long vase life. In this post, we will discuss two types of tulips that are commonly used as cut flowers - standard and double tulips.
What types of Tulips does Azalea deliver?
Standard tulips (pictured right) are the most common type of tulip and come in a range of colours. Suitable for different floral arrangements, standard tulips have a classic, elegant look and are perfect for adding a pop of colour to any bouquet. They are also great for creating minimalist, contemporary arrangements.
Double tulips (pictured left), on the other hand, have a fuller, more luxurious appearance. They have multiple layers of petals that create a dense, ruffled effect. Double tulips come in a range of colours, including shades of red, pink, burgundy and white. They are a popular choice for romantic occasions such as weddings and anniversaries and can add a touch of glamour to any floral arrangement.
How can I care for Tulips at home?
When it comes to caring for tulips as cut flowers, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, it is important to cut the stems at an angle before placing them in fresh water. This helps the flowers to absorb water more easily and prolongs their vase life. Secondly, tulips are sensitive to direct sunlight and heat, so it is important to keep them in a cool, shaded area. Finally, it is a good idea to change the water every few days to help keep the flowers fresh.
Where do Azalea's tulips come from?
At Azalea, we take pride in delivering the best locally grown tulips Melbourne has to offer. We believe in supporting local flower farms and by sourcing our tulips from nearby growers, we can ensure that you receive the freshest and highest quality blooms possible.
When choosing locally grown tulips, you are also contributing to the livelihoods of local farmers, encouraging them to continue their craft and maintain the beauty of the surrounding countryside. By minimising the distance the flowers have to travel, fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions are also decreased.
So, the next time you visit our shop for some flowers at the South Melbourne Market or order from our online store, rest assured that the tulips you’re bringing home are not only gorgeous and fresh but also sourced responsibly from nearby flower farms.
We currently have both standard and double tulips available for purchase in-store and online for delivery across Melbourne.
