This spectacular tulip has pure white double blooms, that are heavily striped with crimson and can grow up to 10cm across. The flowers are long lasting and contrast nicely with the variegated leaves which have an ivory edge. Due to the many good features of this plant, it has been given the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society.
- Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.
