Flyer Tulips

Another dazzling Triumph tulip has appeared on the scene. This time Flyer is a very grown up pink - not granny, not baby or even blush - it is a mid plum fool colour but without any stripes or striations. Its clear colour is flattered by slim, green leaves and a good, well held oval shape. Reasonably tall at 50 cm, Flyer soars above many other tulips and wafts its lovely fragrance through the garden. The stems are slightly grey-ish purple in colour which provides good contrast with the petals. See our full range of tulip bulbs, available to buy online.

Fly me to the moon

One is spoilt for choice with tulips in many ways - and especially those with a pink theme - but Flyer deserves recognition for being mid-way between the pale, pastel look (think Christmas Sweet or White Triumphator ) and the opposing deep and dusky drama queens (Black Parrot or Armani). It will hold its own against coniferous backgrounds, silver foliage or any green, including lime. An excellent cutflower, its sophisticated, even colour is much loved by florists. It looks fabulous with any of the purple tulips like Negrita or bobbing in amongst clumps of daffodils like the white Mount Hood. We reckon this tulip will be flying straight to number 1 in the tulip charts - if not quite to the moon.

Tulip is actually derived from an Arabic word and refers to the shape of the flower which is a little like a turban.
