    Great for mass bedding displays this stately Triumph tulip has vibrant cherry pink flowers that appear in mid season and mix well with other shades of pink lavenders blues and whites. It has sturdy stems, compact foliage and a classic flower shape which holds up well to adverse weather conditions.

  • 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.
