    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: In September to December plant bulbs 10-15cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. 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.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
