    Introduced in 1891, this tall single late tulip is still sought after for its large purple flowers, which blend effortlessly with pinks and purples. It also puts on a striking display when paired with strong red and clashing orange. The flowers are excellent for cutting.

  • 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.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
