The contrast between the red blossoms of this cultivar and the white edged foliage creates a dramatic display that is hard to ignore. A highly visible tulip, Unicum stands out even amongst the densest of spring gardens. Each grey-green stem holds four to six showy blooms in a shade of brilliant red. Praestans Unicum is a wonderful naturaliser - you will notice your displays multiplying year after year, making this variety extremely good value for money. We recommend planting Unicum in dull areas of the garden, as it is sure to bring vibrancy and energy after a long winter. Unicum is ideal for tulip lovers who want something a little bit different, or simply anyone who is looking to bring a burst of spring colour to their pots or borders. Don't forget that tulips like to be planted late in October and November with the colder weather (it helps wipe out disease, too.) Plant bulbs pointy side up, 12cm deep and water well. Top quality 10cm+ bulbs supplied. Flowers March to April. Height 25-30cm.

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.
