Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant out in spring or autumn. Prefers moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Incorporate plenty of organic matter into the planting area and dig a hole deep and wide enough to cover the roots.

Care Tips Deadhead and cut back in the autumn. Apply mulch of well-rotted manure in spring. Protect from slugs and snails. Divide carefully every 3-4 years in spring as it dislikes too much root disturbance.

I planted the bulbs into 2 large containers and the flowers were fabulous for about a month. The orange tulips were less noticeable and flowered a bit later than the purple ones but I was very pleased with them and will continue to enjoy them in the garden next year I hope

The plant was doing really well but perhaps because it is in complete shade it is looking a bit poorly now.

Unfortunately the plant was completely eaten away, although I did try to save the roots, without success. But I will try again another time as it is such a lovely plant.

Bought this in 2017. It didn't flower that year but grew well. I thought it would be better this year but it shows no signs of flowering yet. Yes I know we have had no rain but I've kept them well watered.

Please grow!

I just love this plant and bought a 9cm one. I planted it next to the west wall in our north facing garden, so hopefully that's shady enough for it. It's over a foot tall now and I can't wait for it to get bushy and covered in flowers.
