Fabulous Mimosa yellow tulips flamed with red. The inner flower is a bright a aureoline, flamed red with black anthers. Darwin Hybrids were developed by crossing Darwin with Fosteriana Tulips and produce the largest and most gorgeous of all Tulips with brilliant pyramid shaped blooms carried on tall erect stems. They are mid-season tulip, flowering after the Single Earlies but before the Cottage varieties and have very long lasting qualities with the added bonus of looking great year after year earning them the moniker 'perennial' tulips. Height 55cm. Supplied as 11-12cm bulbs.

Soil Type

Fertile, well drained 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.
