A recipient of the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society, it is beautiful and easy to grow. It has a small, lily-shaped pink flower which has a lighter base and rim to each petal. Lily-shaped tulips tend to have slim stems that look delicate but actually are pretty sturdy and upright.

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.
