    The pointed deep purple petals of this recently introduced tulip are slightly ruffled, and each has a touch of green rising up from the base. A sport of Doll's Minuet, it has an elegant silhouette and it comes up to a good height. It will also mix easily with most shades of pink and purple.

  • 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
