Bulb Size: 12/14A gorgeous lily-flowered tulip with soft violet-mauve flowers that have well-defined white margins and elegantly pointed petals. It is a good, weather-resistant, border tulip which usually comes back reliably year after year without lifting. The flowers are showy and long-lasting and look very similar to the 'Star Gazer' lily when fully open. Such a great performer the RHS have not only awarded it the coveted Award of Garden Merit, but also selected it in their list of top 10 tulips. Not bad at all!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.
