Tulip Calypso is part of the Kaufmanniana series which are bred for their star shaped flowers that remind one of water lilies. Calypso blooms in solid red with slightly in-curving petals. It grows to 30cm (12") tall in full sun to partial shade, so it's great for containers.

Bulbs are easy to plant and easy to grow. Flower Bulbs are broken down into two very general groups – Fall planting bulbs benefit from sitting in cold soil. Spring planting bulbs do not require cold soil to trigger flowering. Fall planting bulbs can be planted any time between late September and January, but most gardeners plant fall bulbs in October and November, about the same time you would plant garlic. Fall planting bulbs will bloom the following spring and early summer. Spring planting bulbs should be sunk into the ground in March and April. They tend to bloom later in the spring, into mid-summer.
