    A gorgeous lily-flowered tulip with soft violet-mauve flowers that have well-defined white margins and elegantly pointed petals. It is a good, weather-resistant, border tulip which usually comes back reliably year after year without lifting. The flowers are showy and long-lasting and look very similar to the 'Star Gazer' lily when fully open. Such a great performer the RHS have not only awarded it the coveted Award of Garden Merit, but also selected it in their list of top 10 tulips. Not bad at all!

  • 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.
