  • Rate of growth: average

    The flowers of this unique tulip will change colour (quite dramatically) as they age. Initially glowing golden yellow, you will start to see hints of blush pink towards the petals edges before they turn a richer shade of salmon pink. When grown in a large cluster, it would not be unusual to have flowers in varying degrees of transformation, so the overall effect is a soft and fuzzy raspberry cream. Delicious!

  • 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.

We used these tulips in containers at the front of a Manor House, and in the walled garden. They were amazing, starting out yellow and each tulip changed colour at a slightly different rate which provided much interest even though it was just one kind. Everyone was impressed with the colour change!

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
