Pointed petals flare out from a nipped-in waist creating an elegant silhouette that will add interest to the bedding scheme when teamed with more traditionally shaped tulips. It associates particularly well with bicolour tulips like 'Shirley' or 'Ballade'.

  • 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.
