    This is a stunning tulip to add to the spring border. A stately grower, it has sturdy stems, that stand up well in poor weather conditions, topped with very generously proportioned reddish pink flowers, which tend to last longer than the average tulip. Also, being a Darwin hybrid, there's a good chance that it will flower over several years.

  • 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.
