    Equally magnificent in the border or a vase, the intense colour of these parrot tulips is a sumptuous shade of orange, flushed with hints of plum and green. Packed with loads of wow-factor, the big ruffled and fringed petals form large plate-like blooms as they open.

  • 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.
