This new Triumph tulip has lots of gently ruffled, rich purple petals, which surround a blue-flushed eye. The colouring, which is rich and intense, coupled with its softly tousled appearance, make this a must have for the border. Excellent for the vase too.
- 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.
