    This snub-nosed deep purple tulip with beetroot-purple veins and a satin finish is bound to draw attention. They look stunning planted en masse but are equally good planted next to softer pastel shades. They have strong stems and large flowers and are quite adept at coping with erratic spring weather. (the combination photo shows it planted with tulip 'Early Glory')

  • 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
