One of the truly great pink Tulips. The petals are well formed and the flowers last well. The petals are the perfect blend of soft and rose pinks.

The stems are strong and grow up to 50cm tall. The blooms open mid season. The flower colour is versatile and looks good with almost anything. We recommend it with other pink Tulips, white Tulips to bring out the softer shades or even red Tulips for a daring combination. The pink flowers also look fabulous amongst silver foliage such as Wormwood.

Tulips have a bit of a Prima Donna reputation but with a little know how they are easy as pie! An easy way to remember when to plant your tulips is to do so around Mother`s Day! This timing is ideal because by this time of year the soil has cooled sufficiently for planting.
All our bulbs are ready to grow; they do not need to be chilled, which is one less thing to do.
It is a good idea to prepare the soil for their arrival by adding some delicious organic matter. Tulips need good drainage and at least six hours sun a day to flower at their best. Plant the bulbs 15-20cm deep with the pointed end up. Space your tulips 10-15cm apart, planting closer for a more spectacular show.
In most areas it is recommended you lift and store your Tulip bulbs once their foliage has browned. You don’t need to do this if you live in an area with frost, the soil is shaded or mulched through summer and the ground does not become soggy during their dormant period. In every other case it is recommended.
