    The deeply fringed and ruffled petals of this gorgeous parrot tulip, will gradually open right out to form big, bowl-shaped flowers. Golden yellow with red flames and a soft green flush, their colouring makes them ideal mixers for hot colour schemes. The flowers last well after being cut too.

  • Garden care: 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.

  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
