    A very conventionally shaped flower for a tulip, but it has outstandingly vibrant colour that makes it a real show-off. The stems are sturdy making them ideal for windy or exposed spots, and the flowers are quite long lasting. If you want a really dramatic show, mix them with strong purples or reds, or tone them down with softer pinks.

  • 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 deadhead 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
