A tall and very distinguished looking tulip, with a Viennese ballroom feel about it. This gives real dignity to a pair of containers at an entranceway.
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.
