    A beautiful lily-flowered tulip with purple-violet, reflexed petals with a narrow margin of creamy-white. This is a particularly sturdy variety, despite looking quite delicate. It is a neat border plant that looks great planted out in bedding displays, or potted up into containers.

  • 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.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
