    An award-winning tulip which is a double form of Princess Irene. It has rich orange petals flamed garnet red that are yellowish at the base and often tipped with green. The inside petals have a brownish tint. These delightful, multi-coloured bowl-shaped flowers top sturdy stems in April.

  • 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
