A recent and very welcome addition to the tulip family which is ideal for bedding displays as well as pots and containers. The rich pink petals become paler towards their edges and have a fresh green central streak running along their length. With the elegant outline for which the lily flowered tulips are so well loved as well as the delightful mix of colour this is a truly beautiful new introduction.

  • 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.
