A fantastic earlier flowering Triumph Tulip. Its inside is a deep burnt orange, on the outer petals orange yellow and red combine to create this unusual bronzy bloom. Triumph tulips are a cross between Single Early Tulips and later flowering varieties so have the strong weather hardy stems long flowering lives associated with these varieties with the added bonus of the beautiful and distinctive traditional tulip shape. For mixed displays Cairo is a welcome addition to a summery blend of oranges and yellows and will look stunning contrasted with the deep purple varieties such as Saigon or Zurel. Height 45cm flowering late April/May.11/12cm bulbs supplied.

Soil Type

Well drained garden soil

Plant bulbs in well dug soil about 8-10cm deep and approx 15cm apart. It is often beneficial to use a little bonemeal or super phosphate mixed in with the soil. Tulips delight during their growth in a sunny location.
After the tulips have bloomed and when leaves fade and turn brown the bulbs can be lifted, dried, cleaned and stored in a cool place until planting time. Tulips should not be grown in the same soil for several years, so replace with fresh soil every other year.
