Fusarino is the most stunning bright, rose pink tulip. It is a flower show judge's dream; as close to egg shaped as a tulip gets (that is tulip perfection by the way) and with the gentlest sheen on its petals. And then there is the colour - as in the most drop-dead gorgeous shocking pink money can buy. Planted en masse, Fusarino is so jaw dropping that there is a real risk of dislocation! try it and see. Or you can tone it down interplanting with Negrita or maybe go for a pink/white contrast with White Dream or be really cool and interplant them with white or golden wallflowers (have a look at our wallflower seedlings).
Triumph tulips flower in April and May which makes them almost essential if you want to have colour in your garden after spring flowering bulbs have gone and before June lights up your border. Growing to a reasonable height - about 50 cms - they are good mid-border subjects in early season. Have some where you can reach them though as they make superb cut flowers. All Triumph tulips are resistant to wet and windy weather and Fusarino is no exception so its flowers will be with you for about six weeks, closing up every evening and opening wide by midday.
