    Shiny, lance-shaped green leaves form loose clumps, which in early to mid-spring are crowned with white-tipped yellow flowers, often with a reverse that is flushed with red and green. Happiest in richer soils, its compact habit makes it ideal for pots. This tulip is one of the few that do not need to be lifted each year and if planted in the ground, it will spread to form good-sized clumps.

    This tulip forms part of our organic bulb range. Sadly there are only a handful of growers who are currently able to grow their bulbs organically, so although we stock as many as we can source, our range is limited. They are supplied in a plastic-free compostable bag.

  • Garden care: In November or December plant bulbs 10-15cm deep in fertile, well-drained soil. After flowering deadhead and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month.
  • Humans: Harmful if eaten; skin allergen; Pets: Ornamental bulbs - not to be eaten
