    Brooding near-black flowers top the stout stems of this single late tulip. Excellent in late spring and early summer bedding schemes, its rich chocolate-red colouring looks great as a contrast to creamy whites and yellows, or toned with soft pinks.

  • 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.
