    The lilac petals of this beautiful tulip have a pearly sheen and a paler margin that has a spikey-looking serrated edge. This gives the flowers a textural quality, that offers and interesting contrast when they are planted with other tulips that have a more traditional flower. Their colouring is easy to mix, working well with most shades of pink as well as stronger purples and white.

  • Garden care: From 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.
