Rockery & Dwarf Tulip Bulbs

This mixture contains the Kaufmanniana tulips Heart's Delight and Johann Strauss with the Greigii Hybrid Albion Star and Pinocchio. Add in Red Riding Hood and the collection is complete. You can grow them separately or combine them artfully, but however you choose to plant these bulbs you are guaranteed the apogee of red and cream tulips from March to the end of April. Beginning with the ruby red of 'Heart's Delight' that opens in the sunshine to reveal a pale pink interior, continuing with 'Johann Strauss' and his perky cream blooms with flushing cheeks of embarrassment, followed by the pure cream multi-flowering 'Albion Star' misted with rosy pink and ending with that cheeky, scarlet 'Pinocchio', you cannot fail to be enchanted by these reliable, easy to grow tulips. They may be small plants, but they pack a mean punch in the flower department, and many of them sport either striped or mottled foliage as well.

The most obvious place for Dwarf Tulips, rockeries aside, is in pots, tubs or urns where their glowing colours stand for a welcoming spring cheer which is easy to achieve, comes back year after year and requires no maintenance. Layer these bulbs with others like varieties of unusual Narcissus (Cheerfulness or Pink Pride spring to mind) or Muscari to combine with and continue the floral interest while the often spectacular foliage provides ground cover. Grow all four together for a real range of reds and creams, but 'Pinocchio' and 'Johann Strauss' look particularly good together because they have almost reversed colouring. These tulips also make a great edge to a border, like a giant frill of lace, and cover banks and slopes remarkably effectively as well.

Did you know?

There are over 100 species of tulip and the number of varieties is rising. From the first stirrings of tulip mania which saw the making and destroying of so many fortunes in the 1630s in Holland to today, tulips remain one of the most poplular, and most frequently grown garden plant. This selection includes the Greigii tulips that are also known as the Peacocks because of their dandy-ish colouring and exotic foliage. The Kaufmanniana tulips open in full sun to resemble water lilies
