Description

The traditional favourite deep wine red peony-flowered tulip which we’ve grown and loved for years. As a double, it’s very long-flowering and with shortish stems, ideal for pots. That’s where we use it, in our window boxes and large containers.

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.
