These newer species are amongst the most beautiful tulips grown in the Greigii Kaufmanniana, Fosterianna and Botanical types. These tulips are usually short stemmed and often with mottled foliage. Great for rockeries and ideal for pots and tubs on the patio. They are easy to grow in a sunny well drained position, but prefer a southern cool spot in warmer districts. Plant the bulbs in well prepared soil, 6-8 cm deep and 10-15cm apart, ideally in bold clumps. If drainage is a problem, plant slightly shallower and mound the soil over them. Tip: Snap off the old flower heads to push their energy into bulb growth. Tulips are best lifted in November to December and kept in a cool dry place with air movement. Plant the bulbs again in April to May. 5 bulbs per pack.
