    The colour of this tulip is very intense and is probably one of the 'truest' reds - even while still in bud. It is incredibly versatile as you can plant it with so many different colours. Try it with shades of pink for softer schemes or be bold and mix it with purples for some serious wow factor.

    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.
