A very conventionally shaped flower for a tulip but it has outstandingly vibrant colour that makes it a real show-off. The stems are sturdy making them ideal for windy or exposed spots and the flowers are quite long lasting. If you want a really dramatic show mix them with strong purples or reds or tone them down with softer pinks.

  • 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.
