The petals on this stunning triumph tulip are a deep wine red but each has a broad orange edge which turns a pinkish apricot as the slender flowers mature. Topping sturdy stems they make an elegant and eye catching addition to the seasonal border display.
- 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.
