This lily-flowered tulip makes a wonderful addition to pots and containers, as well as adding style to the early summer bedding scheme. The petals are long and pointed and their red colouring is feathered with yellow towards the outer edges. Each flower has an hourglass shape, that gives them an elegant air.
- 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.
