Deep blackcurrant coloured blooms with up to 3 flowers per stem appear in April. This has a similar colouring to the very popular Queen of Night tulip, but the flowers appear earlier on this variety. Therefore it is a great combination if you are looking to have an extended period of rich, deep colour in spring.
- 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.
