One of the deepest red-flowering tulips, which sit on darkly stained stems. This mid season tulip with its dramatic colouring is a very striking addition to the garden. Plant it in clumps at the front of a border or straight into pots where they can be moved around when they are in flower.
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
