If you like bi-coloured flowers then you will love this beautiful triumph tulip. They have large open ivory-white cup shaped petals with beetroot-purple flaming from the base in mid April. Triumph tulips are favoured for their traditionally shaped flowers and sturdy stems which allow them to cope with bad weather and they make excellent cut flowers.

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.
