This rare colour changing tulip begins its life golden yellow and orange, with salmon-rose appearing as wild stripes or speckles that intensify and deepen with age. No two of these cup-shaped blooms look the same, and each one stands on a contrasting yellow-green stem with broad lance-shaped leaves. El Nino is a valuable spring variety which is best appreciated when planted in a large swathe in the border, to showcase the individuality of each uniquely blended tulip. El Nino is ideal for a flower arranging enthusiast as the tri-blended petals exude an artistic feel. 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, 15cm deep and water well. Top quality 11/12cm bulbs supplied. Flowers April to May. Height 40cm.

Plant approx 10cm deep.

Soil Type

Well drained garden soil

Plant bulbs in well dug soil about 8-10cm deep and approx 10-15cm 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.
