Description

Stunning, flame-coloured flowers, open on branching stems much later than most other tulips in May and June, in fact this is the latest flowering member of the genus. This, easy beautiful and distinctive bright-red flowered tulip will self-seed, even into grass and under trees. This larger-flowered and taller form with the same vivid colour was named after a friend of E.A.Bowles.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, 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 pot 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.
