Buy Tulipa 'Blue Beauty' triumph tulip bulbs: Wonderful colouring that mixes easily

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 11/12

    Rose-violet petals with a blue satin sheen and a violet-blue inner, form exquisite flowers that top the stout upright stems. Tall and elegant, it is one of the best for cutting as it lasts well in a vase, and it mixes well with a wide range of colours in the border. Try it next to the chartreuse green of a euphorbia, the soft pink of a montana clematis or in front of a dark purple-leaved backdrop.

  • Garden care: From 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 deadhead 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.

Lovely colour

Grew strong but colour not as pictured


These tulips were strong growers and lasted a long time in exposed conditions. However, the colour was not as vibrant as pictured (perhaps due to my soil) and so were less impressive than hoped but still worth the money.




Not all the bulbs did well


These tulips were planted up in a large pot with darker tulips, but unfortunately not all them came up. the few that did had very good, strong pink colour and contrasted well with their neighbours.

Perfect combination


Firstly, a small gripe, the photo used by Crocus here does not match the actual colour of this tulip! Please look at the Berry Swirl photo for a much more accurate representation! I bought these as part of the Berry Swirl combination and the 2 work perfectly together, a really lovely pairing that is very pleasing to the eye.

Tulip Fire

Tips of emerging leaves appear brown and scorched, and often shrivel and rot. The foliage soon becomes covered in a grey fungus. Brown spots appear on the leaves and flowers, which may also rot.

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

Create colourful containers

If the budget’s tight or your plot is tiny, potting up a large container will make much more of an impact. It has to be rugged, either frost-proof terracotta, wood or stone, to withstand hard weather. Your compost has to be equally meaty and should conta

Tips for your tulips

The most useful garden tulips arrive in the second half of April or in May, after most of the daffodils have flowered. For this reason it’s a good idea not to mix the two because by the time your tulips flower, the daffodils will be past their best.
