    The sturdy stems of these single, early-flowering tulips stand up well in wind and rain, and in March and April are topped with soft, salmon-pink, cup-shaped flowers, each with an orange margin. Robust and versatile, they're perfect for planting in a sunny, sheltered, well-drained border or a large patio container. Plant them where you can best enjoy the subtle but sweet scent of the blooms.

  • Garden care: From September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm (6-8in) deep in fertile, well-drained soil. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
