this incredible tangerine-hued beauty has huge flower heads that are loaded with a mass of ruffled, fringed petals and look more like a garden rose than a tulip. Everyone who encounters ‘Sensual Touch’ falls madly in love.
SITE: full sun
FLOWERING MONTHS: April
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.
