The tepals (petals) are delicately "flamed" in various shades of pink and orange, contrasting with scarlet on the inside and a lemon-yellow base. Tulipa 'Annie Schilder' is a member of the Triumph group of tulips, grown for their long stems and graceful flowers in May. Plant 'Annie Schilder' in well-drained soil and in full sun.
The Triumph tulips, as a group, are often planted in containers and forced into bloom earlier in the year. In the Chicago area, they do not naturalize as well as cultivars of the Darwin Hybrid group.
