The deeply fringed and ruffled petals of this gorgeous parrot tulip will gradually open right out to form big bowl-shaped flowers. Golden yellow with red flames and a soft green flush, their colouring makes them ideal mixers for hot colour schemes. The flowers last well after being cut too.

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.
