    Beautiful, scarlet-red flowers with black centres from April to May and handsome, purple-striped, strap-like, grey-green leaves. These chunky, dwarf tulips are perfect for a sunny, well-drained rockery or a large patio container. After flowering they may be left in the ground for several years, unlike other varieties that need to be lifted and stored.

  • Garden care: In 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
