Packs a real punch when planted with other hot-coloured varieties like tulip Suncatcher and tulip Ronaldo. Triumph type.
Velvety, red-wine colours emerge in spring on this romantic moody red tulip. Strong stems hold up the beautiful flowers, withstanding adverse weather and our often unpredictable springs.
Consider cutting some stems for bouquets to a loved one or for a vase with other beautiful spring bulbs, positioning on mantelpieces in your home.
Plant 12 bulbs in a 30cm (12in) container or around every square foot (30cm²) area of soil in a sunny bed. Grow with contrasting white and red tulips like tulip Marilyn for stunning flower partnerships.
How you receive your bulbs
You receive our spring-flowering bulbs in autumn in a plastic mesh. This is to keep the bulbs together in a pack which is nice and airy – perfect to keep the bulbs healthy while in transit.
Can’t plant straight away?
Keep your bulbs in a cool, light and dry place and preferably hanging on a hook so that air can get to the bulbs at all angles. Look to planting your bulbs within a week of receiving them.
