- Plant Tulips first once the weather has turned wintery, then top the pot off with the evergreen Heuchera surrounded by the Viola
The idea with this is to combine evergreen foliage plants for winter interest in a pot or border.
In early spring the violas come into flower, crowned by the tulips later in the spring. So you have interest from autumn through to May – when you can replant your pots with your summer pot combinations.
With this trio, the heuchera fills your pot through winter, topped by mahogany viola flowers as light levels increase in early spring. Then up come the tulips in April, to finish the show.
This collection contains:
- 1 plant of Heuchera 'Citronelle'
- 5 jumbo seedlings of Viola x wittrockiana 'Matrix Sunrise' F1
- 10 bulbs of Tulip 'Ronaldo'
Keep moist until established and apply a liquid feed fortnightly through the summer. Deadhead flowers regularly to encourage repeat flowering all summer long.
