A multi-headed tulip that can produce up to 5 dazzling flowers on each stem in mid-spring. Their orange-red colouring is really eye-catching, so they really put on a great show, and as the plants are relatively compact, they are great for pots as well as borders.
- Garden care: From October to December plant the bulbs 10-15cm deep and 8cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. After flowering apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. If planted in a lawn, make sure the turf is not cut until the foliage has completely died back.
- Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
