    10 × Tulipa 'Sapporo'
    Distinctly pointed petals form hourglass flowers on tall stems in late spring. Initially a soft buttery yellow, the flowers fade to creamy white as they mature. Perfect for the cottage garden, they look great planted with shades of orange or red.Grows to 50cm tall.

    10 × Tulipa 'Daytona'
    This tulip looks great when planted in generous drifts through an all white colour scheme, where its fringed and gently ruffled petals will add textural interest as well as colour. It's actually very easy to place in most colourways however, so try it with bicoloured tulips (pink and white, purple and white, yellow and white etc), or set it against a lush green backdrop - it looks great!Grows to 50cm tall.

    10 × Tulipa 'Happy People'
    Golden yellow petals, each with a wide brushstroke of white around the outer edge, form classic, cup-shaped flowers in late spring. It makes a handsome contrast to blues and purples, so you could try underplanting it with forget me nots, but it's also useful for adding interest to yellow or white colour schemes. Grows to 45cm tall.

  • Garden care: From August to November plant the bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10-15cm apart in a sunny spot with fertile, well-drained soil. While actively growing, keep them moderately well watered and remove the flowers after they have faded. At that stage a balanced liquid fertiliser can be applied each week for 4 weeks before they die down.
