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

    The exquisite colouring of these tulips makes them great for mixing. They blend easily with deeper and paler pinks, as well as most shades of purple, from soft lilacs to rich plums (the combination photo shows it planted with tulip 'Negrita'). They are elegant tulips with a classic-shaped flower, which holds up well in adverse weather conditions. They also make excellent additions to a vase.

  • 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.

I love Crocus and their products. I would often use their website to show clients certain varieties of plants. All the bulbs I have recived from them have come in good time and been very healthy and flowered.

Such a pretty tulip. Mixed well with other spring flowers. The foilage was huge and filled up the space in the patio pots, which looked lovely. The colour was a beautiful delicate shade of pink, but quite robust it never faultered in the winds.
