Description

If a flamingo was ever to become a tulip, this is how it would turn out and nothing gives me more pleasure than to see clumps of it in our pots at home. It came up in my parents’ garden for over 20 years.

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.

Care Tips

After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
