    The petals of this spectacular tulip are a delicious velvety red, edged in fire engine-red and flamed with fine green markings. Finally the entire flower has a soft blue sheen, which seems to intensify further. As with all parrot tulips, these also boast deeply cut petals which give them a fringed look. These are one of the best for cut flowers as their stems create interesting shapes in the vase.

  • 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.
