Cultivation
Don’t plant tulips until mid-late October. Plant pointy end up 10-15cm deep, 8cm apart in borders (less in containers). You can use a mycorrhizal Bulb Starter. After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.

Description

Sophisticated and supremely elegant red-crimson petals with a plum-like, silvery sheen. This was one of Vita Sackville-West's favourite tulips and there are still lots at Sissinghurst.

I am a big fan of the Single Early group of tulips. They have neat, yet robust flowers with delicate feathering on the outside and a silvery tinge to their leaves and I love the fact they are early.
