Like a tropical fruit salad, with mango, pawpaw, passion fruit — with the greatest, strongest colours all thrown in. The Queen here is the new Viridiflora ‘Orange Marmalade’ with vast flowers that stay in the garden for nearly 6 weeks. We have this fruity mix planted in our partially shaded rhubarb bed and the sun shines there now every day.This collection contains 5 or 10 bulbs each of:
- Tulip 'Lambada'
- Tulip 'Ballerina'
- Tulip 'Orange Marmalade'
- Tulip 'Attila Graffiti'
- Tulip 'Slawa'
- Tulip 'Cadance'
This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.
Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.
Tulip petals are all edible. We scatter them over salad and use some petals dipped in tempura batter and served with a spring garden Frito Misto. Tulip 'White Valley' is a favourite for this.
After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
