Delicate, soft pink, double, bowl-shaped flower, flushed with both paler and darker shades of pink in April and May. From a distance, you could easily mistake these tulips for peonies and they are usually one of the last tulip into flower - so a good one to choose if you want to extend a display.
SITE: full sun
FLOWERING MONTHS: May to June
BULB SIZE: 10/11
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.
