Go to Ecard Page

One of the many varieties of double tulips grown in temperate climates for their late Spring colour. This is the blackest of all to date.
Needs well drained soil in full sun. Will do well in deep window boxes.
Plant late Autumn - December for flowering April-May. 45cmH. Plant 10cm deep 10 cm apart.
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.
