    Rich pink flower petals that are streaked with white and gradually fade to mainly white as the flowers age make this a delightful and interesting addition to the mid spring bedding scheme. It is a tall and elegant tulip and the soft colouring means that it is particularly easy to mix.

  • 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.
