Belicia is a unique looking double flowering Tulip variety that produces three to four giant peony-like flowers per stem. The flowers start as bright lemon in colour, edged with a contrasting carmine shade, then gradually they change to white with deeper red edges.
SITE: full sun
FLOWERING MONTHS: April to May
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.
