The incredibly beautiful flowers, which appear late in the season, make welcome additions to spring bedding displays. Their soft yellow and pink colouring becomes stronger as the flowers age, and as it works so well with a number of other shades, these tulips can be used as a link for stronger pinks, purples and yellows. Good fragrance.
- 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.
