    A beautiful species tulip that can be left in the ground for several years, where it will gradually form a naturalised swathe of early spring colour in borders or meadows. The flowers themselves are mainly white, but usually with a subtle pink or greenish yellow flush - and they tend to be longer-lasting than many of the tulips commonly used as seasonal bedding. As they open, they resemble yellow-eyed stars that seem to hover amongst the grey-green leaves. A stunner!

  • Garden care: In November or December plant bulbs 15cm deep and 8cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. After flowering deadhead and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
