    An elegant tulip with broad white slightly feathered petals each with a bright green central band.

It looks particularly lovely teamed with silver foliaged plants or with other tulips especially the dark plum coloured varieties like 'Black Hero'

  • 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.
