Producing stunning bright red blooms, the massive peony-like flower heads are a delight to behold. Growing only to 40cm, this dwarf variety is perfect for growing in pots on the patio or for a low border. Why not try underplanting with wallflowers for a fantastic full spring display. They flower throughout April, generally around two weeks earlier than other double early tulips so with some careful planning can be used to create a long, ongoing tulip display throughout the season. 11-12cm bulbs supplied.

Planting

Plant at approx 10cm deep.

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.
