With its rich blend of orange, apricot and yellow tones, this tulip really is a cracker - but what makes it even more interesting is the fine fringed edge to each of the petals. Topping tall stems in mid- to late spring, it will bring colour as well as textural interest to borders and pots, and it will team with a whole host of shades including reds, yellows, purples and plum.
- 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
