Blackjack Tulips

If you are looking for a darkly, romantic tulip then Blackjack might well be the answer. Its elegant oval shaped flower is a glossy, deep, deep purple - so deep that it could be mistaken for black - and it has the sheen of a raven's wing on it. The flower sways on a 50 cm stem giving it model-like proportions. Its fresh, green foliage supports the main act and is narrower leaved than many other tulips. Blackjack is a Triumph tulip and so is mid-season - flowering for most of April, a reliable perennial bloomer and definitely one of the thoroughbreds in the tulip stable. See our full range of tulip bulbs, available to buy online.

No roulette here!

While Blackjack is normally associated with the highs and lows of the gaming table, placing a bet on this particular Blackjack is risk-free and really not that expensive. Use Blackjack as you would any other tulip but capitalise on its dusky tones by pairing it with some of the paler (White Dream , Creme Upstar)or brighter (Abba, Caractere)Triumph or Double tulips so that you can get real contrast of texture and colour. Set it against silvery foliage or a stone wall so that it stands out. This is not the time to have a yew hedge as your backdrop.

Tulip facts

Tulips make wonderful cut flowers but did you know that if you put your tulip in a vase it can keep growing by another inch or so. Not so good for the precision florist but interesting nonetheless.....
