- A beautifully viridiflora tulip that has a delightful lily-flowered shape. The deep pinky-red petals are lightly flushed with green and have pointy tips that flare outwards at the top of the flower. It is highly prized for its unusual colouring and slender petalled, spidery blooms that have a really interesting silhouette.
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.
