    The slender, fluted profile of this lily flowering tulip makes it an elegant addition to the spring border, while it's colouring makes it a showstopper. It will look great when blended with yellows or oranges, but will also offer a striking contrast to blue or silver.

  • 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
