Description

Strong clumps of glossy bright green leaves stand below goblet-shaped bright red flowers which are 5-6cm in length in early summer. This is the latest of all of the tulips to open its flowers and will self seed to make remarkable colonies in time. This most desirable, rare, late-blooming tulip which will grow in sun or shade, is very rarely for sale and then is often offered at more than £3 per bulb!

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
