A dwarf Tulip with brilliant, vermilion red, glossy flowers up to 10cm across. The colouration is dazzling in full sun, when the flowers open widely, showing off their large, jet-black centre.
Species Tulips have a more relaxed or whimsical feel than the common hybridized varieties. Species Tulips are ideal for rock gardens, lawn plantings, pots or towards the front of a border.
If planted in a well drained soil, in a spot that does not get too hot or wet over summer then the bulbs can be left in the ground for many years.
