The edges of the rich golden petals look like they have been cut with pinking shears to create a jagged effect on these very showy flowers. They look particularly good when planted alongside traditionally shaped tulips as their diverse textures will add greater interest. Once the petals start to fall the purple anthers provide a good colour contrast.

  • 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.
