    Tall and elegant, this recently introduced lily-flowered tulip looks superb in a formal bedding scheme, where it can be used to add height and bold colour. The flowers also make stylish additions to the vase and look amazing when teamed up with acid greens and purples. It's lush.

  • 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
