Sophisticated and supremely elegant red-crimson petals with a plum-like, silvery sheen. Tulip 'Couleur Cardinal' is invaluable for being early and excellent in pots.
I am a big fan of the Single Early group of tulips. They have neat, yet robust flowers with delicate feathering on the outside and a silvery tinge to their leaves and I love the fact they are early.

Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper and soak for 8 hrs. This helps keep the stems straight.|
