TULIPA CLUSIANA 'SHEILA'
Warm bronze to golden shades make this uncommon long-stemmed species tulip a good choice for a mixed planting scheme, or will make a lovely display closely planted in a pot or container. The flowers will open their faces in full sun, but on more shady days the peachy tinge to the outside of the petals still provides colourful interest.
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.
