The pointed white petals of this liliflora tulip have a broad green stripe along their length which creates a distinctive look. As the flowers age the petals open to form attractive star-like shapes. The flowers are long-lasting and are perfect for adding to cut arrangements. Plant them in conjunction with more traditionally shaped white tulips to create interest in their contrasting form.

  • 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.
