    The exquisite colouring of these tulips makes them great for mixing. They blend easily with deeper and paler pinks, as well as most shades of puple, from soft lilacs to rich plums (the combination photo shows it planted with tulip 'Negrita'). They are elegant tulips with a classic-shaped flower, which holds up well in adverse weather conditions. They also make excellent additions to a vase.

  • Garden care: Front 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.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
