One of the prettiest varieties of late tulips grown in temperate climates for their Spring colour. Looks well near to apple trees in blossom.
Needs well drained soil in full sun. Will do well in deep window boxes.
Plant late Autumn - December for flowering in May.
Let leaves die down naturally, lift, dry, store and replant in late autumn.
(If grown in window boxes/tubs there is no need to lift - let leaves dry naturally and do not water or feed until next autumn then feed, replenish soil and grow on. Divide/replenish every 3-4 years.)
Protect from slugs and propagate by removing bulblets when lifted.
