Quick Overview

Tulip 'Orange Favourite'

Tulip 'Orange Favourite' is freesia-scented and wonderful with Allium ‘Purple Sensation’, and invaluable for its late flowering. One of my long-standing favourites.

See Tulip 'Orange Favourite' in Sarah's Tour of the Oast Garden in May on our YouTube channel.

Our tulip bulbs are the best and biggest we can find, from tried and trusted growers. Don't forget that tulips like to be planted late in October and November with the colder weather, and need a little watering if planted in pots.

Genus: Tulipa
Variety Orange Favourite
Group: Parrot Tulips
Type: Deciduous
Soil Type: Well-drained - sandy, chalky
Site: Full sun, partial shade
Height: 50cm (20in)
Spacing: Plant 30cm deep, 8cm apart. Layer bulbs if room is tight.
Hardiness: Hardy
Care tips: Don't plant tulip bulbs until the cold weather has set in- this helps wipe out viral and fungal diseases. Leave the browning foliage on your tulips until every leaf has died right down - this allows the bulb to store more food
Flowers: ❀ May
For the vase: Tulips make supreme cut flowers. Strip the bottom leaves, tie the stems in paper and soak for 8 hrs. This helps keep the stems straight.
