    In each collection you will receive the following:

    10 × 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 flowers and foliage plants. Shown here photographed with tulip 'Shirley'. Grows to 60cm.

    10 × Tulipa 'Negrita'
    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. Grows to 50cm.

    10 × Tulipa 'Spring Green'
    An elegant tulip with broad, white, slightly feathered petals each with a bright green central band. Perfect for a sunny, well-drained border where it will brighten up a spring day or for planting in pots on the patio. It looks particularly lovely teamed with silver foliaged plants or with other tulips, especially the dark plum-coloured varieties like 'Queen of Night'. Grows to 50cm.

    10 × 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.

    10 × Tulipa 'Ile de France'
    Glowing red, well-shaped flowers, which last well (even in poor weather conditions) and are great for cutting, top the stout stems in spring, adding vibrant colour to the bedding scheme. Mix with rich golds and orange shades, or tuck it in with deep purples for a dazzling display. Grows to 50cm.

  • 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.
