If I was to select one tulip from our discoveries from our trip to Holland and trials at Perch Hill last spring, I think it would be ‘Orange Marmalade’. As a Viridiflora, they’re the most perennial in a garden and their green flash makes them last more like a leaf than a flower in the vase, so they’re fantastic value. When you add that to the scale and drama of these whopper orange flashed green, citrus-fresh flowers, you’ll be bowled over.
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.
