    Black eyed, magenta pink flowers put on a showy display in spring, when they pop up above their slender grey-green foliage. A low-growing species tulip, it is ideal for adding a vibrant splash of colour to patio pots (or windowboxes), and it also makes a natural addition to rockeries and alpine beds. It's small, but very sweet!

  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15cm deep and 10cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 9 - 12 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month.
