A sport of the Tulip 'Princess Irene', Hermitage tulips have even bigger blossoms each petal of which has a central purple flare. The petals themselves are hard to describe in words. They are fiery tangerine plus mandarin red, plus orange plus a bit of pink. It all sounds a bit much but the effect is truly beautiful. The flowers are shaped like a goblet and make the most eye-catching show in April/May looking for all the world like firebrands. Just a fabulous addition to our range of tulip bulbs for sale.
Hermitage is a Triumph tulip and in common with most members of the group it has a sturdy stem which makes it a good cutting flower. Tulips as a group do not really like windy spots, but if you are going to try, then this is the one to bet on.
