    This old favourite is probably one of the most popular varieties of tulip. It is a triumph tulip which produces a silvery-pink egg shaped flower which is flushed slightly darker at the centre of each petal. It has sturdy upright stems and long lasting flowers. The delicate flower colour will blend with stronger pinks, blues, purples and silvers.

  • 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.
