Bulb size: 12+From pink-flushed, silvery buds, ruffled, irregulaly-shaped petals open to show their slightly darker pink interiors. A graceful tulip, which forms big, open cups when mature. Its interesting shape and soft colouring makes it a good partner for more formal looking cultivars with stronger pink tones.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.
