Sumptuous plum-purple bowl shaped flowers top of sturdy stems in mid spring. This single early tulip is suitable for bruised colour schemes where it mixes well with rich reds and deep purples. They have strong flower stems so they cope well with wind and rain and are suitable for planting in more exposed parts of the garden.

  • 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.
