The traditional favourite deep wine red peony-flowered tulip which loved for years. As a double, it’s very long-flowering and with shortish stems and is ideal for pots, window boxes and containers, but equally looks great at the front of a border.
Bulb size 10/11
From September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm (6-8in) deep in fertile, well-drained soil. 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.
