    Like many other members of the greigii group, the leaves of this tulip are attractively mottled with maroon. The simmering orange-red flowers appear in March or April, providing a bold blast of seasonal colour for the front of the border, rockery or patio pot. Relatively short as far as tulips go, their flowers nonetheless are large in comparison and very showy.

  • 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
