  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March - April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    From amongst the lax clumps of long, slender leaves, upright bowl-shaped flowers emerge on short, sturdy stems. The hot pink petals often have a green flush on their outer edges, while the inside eye is a mix of creamy white and rich blue.

  • Garden care: From August to November plant the bulbs 15-15cm deep and 10-15cm apart in a sunny spot with fertile, well-drained soil. While actively growing, keep them moderately well watered and remove the flowers after they have faded. At that stage a balanced liquid fertiliser can be applied each week for 4 weeks before they die down.

I put these bulbs in pots in November and they all came up in the spring. They are petite (as per the description) and so are not as noticeable as some tulips you can get, but they are pretty. I bought some more this season to plant out in the garden next to the path so that they will be seen.
