​Tulipa Exotic Emperor

Exotic Emperor is a delightfully loose, slightly slouchy, but totally classy bloom. Its silky inner petals are ivory white, opening from somewhat twisted buds to full, rounded flowers. Surrounding these rose-like blooms are wisps of green and yellow striated petals, cupping the full white flowers with gentle persuasion. It looks like a peony-flowered tulip but is in fact a Fosteriana, indicating large early flowers and colours that aren't too 'in your face'.

  • Flowering: April
  • Planting Depth: 10-15cm

If you're planting Exotic Emperor in borders and flowerbeds, it looks lovely combined with other tulips in contrasting colours. The rich colour of Purple Flag with its simple goblet-shaped flowers, makes a wonderful contrast. Thread through a seam of soft lilac Candy Prince, too, for a mix that's at once dreamy and powerful. Or create a pale and interesting combination by planting Exotic Emperor with white or pale lemon hyacinths (a little yellow brings out its green and sulphur stripe beautifully); pure-white Carnegie and primrose yellow City of Haarlem fit the bill perfectly. Add a few drifts of delicate spidery white Thalia daffodils and you have a planting mixture fit for an empress. Wallflowers, too, make regal companions for all kinds of tulips.
