Description

Tulip 'Unique de France' has amazing petals - shiny and gleaming lipstick red, certainly one of the most vibrant coloured tulips but most unique for its foliage. This tulip is a sport of the Ile de France which usually has a grey blue layer of wax on the leaves of the tulips, giving them a matte finish. The leaves on this tulip lack that coating and look as if they have been polished with silver polish.

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.
