    'Princes Irene' acts as the touchpaper for this classic combination, offering both a sharp contrast, but still keeping in tone with its purple flush to the petals. 'Princes Irene' are also scented, so if you can, plant these near a pathway or entrance.

    In each collection you wil receive the following bulbs:

    10 x Tulipa 'Queen of Night'
    These are probably the best loved of the deep purple tulips. Their velvety, dark maroon, single, cup-shaped flowers on straight stems in May are stunning, so they do deserve their acclaim. The almost-black tulips work well in a 'bruised' coloured border, planted between other plum-coloured Grows to 60cm tall.

    10 x Tulipa 'Purple Flag'
    A stunning tulip, that will add strength to planting schemes containing shades of plum, lilac and blue. It also associates well with plants that have silvery coloured foliage. Stout and robust, it stands up well in poor weather conditions and the flowers are excellent for cutting. Grows to 45cm tall.

    10 x Tulipa 'Prinses Irene'
    Named after a Dutch Princess, this variety was first introduced in 1949. It has pale orange petals that are flushed with purple and are sweetly scented. Their short, sturdy stems make them ideal for growing in windy or exposed positions and they rarely get flattened by heavy spring downpours. Grows to 30cm 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.
