  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Spectacular, cup-shaped flowers with irregularly cut, wavy, white-flamed red petals in May and strap-like, grey-green leaves. These eye-catching, bi-coloured parrot tulips make excellent cut-flowers. Since the stems often need support they're best planted close together in a sunny, sheltered, well-drained border.

  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.
