    The sumptuous colouring of this striking tulip is a subtle blend of deep purple with pink and blue overtones, while the petals have a satin-like lustre. It's a truly gorgeous thing - particularly when planted en-masse, although it will add body to a planting scheme with softer pinks and violets. Alternatively, use it to contrast with silvers or chartreusse green - wow!

  • 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
