Our five favourite tulips
We’re currently enjoying planting spring flowering bulbs, especially tulips, which come in a variety of colours and shapes. Tulips can be planted well into November too so plenty of time to get organised. Check out our five favourite varieties:
Tulip ‘Carnival de Rio’
Create your own carnival in the garden with this one. This tulip has an interesting flower colour and creamy, edged foliage.
It’s every little girls dream to be a ballerina. This tulip is fragrant and has an interesting flower shape and colour. The flowers appear in April/May. It reaches an eventual height of 55cm. It has an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
We wish we were jetting off to sunnier climbs but instead we’ll have to enjoy the brightly coloured flowers of the Tulip ‘Barbados’.
This tulip has an unusual, almost fluffy in appearance, unique textured flower head, which appears in April/May.
Tulip ‘Ice Cream’
Perfect for enjoying on a hot summers day, This tulip has a very unusual flower that looks like an ice cream on a short stem. Unfortunately, this one can’t be eaten!
Tulip ‘Pretty Woman’
Named after one of our favourite rom-coms, this tulip has long-lasting red flowers that flowers appear in April/May.
