It is highly compact, growing to a height of only 20-30cm, and flowers from March to April. Its inner petals are brighter, with a dark base and flecks of yellow in the centre, and each flower head sits amongst grey-green mottled purple foliage. 'Red Riding Hood' is ideal for planting in patio pots, containers, or part of a cut flower display. Excellent alongside contrasting Tulips of a similar style, such as Albion Star, or beside your other red varieties.

Growing at a glance…

Tulip bulbs should be planted in autumn, before any frost. Find an area of soil that is well-drained and moist and plant your bulbs at twice their depth and spaced apart by 10-15cm. Ensure they are properly covered, you should not be able to see them on the surface of the soil. Position in an area that you know receives plenty of sunlight but is also sheltered from harsh winds. Deadhead the flowers once they wilt, encouraging a healthier plant.
