Description

Armani Tulips

Armani is a Triumph tulip. Tall - 45 cm - stems carry goblet shaped flowers of the deepest burgundy red with clearly defined white edges. Giorgio doing a bit of piping on the lapel perhaps! Whether Signor Armani had a hand in the design of this tulip or not, it is stunning in containers or in drifts in the border. One of the most striking of our range of tulip bulbs for sale.

Flowering starts in late April and goes well into May, helping to cover over one of those periods when many gardens can look a bit "flat". Plant Armani by itself for impact or mixed with a pure white tulip such as Diana for a more subtle effect.

Planting instructions

Tulips are generally best grown in borders and containers. They like richer soils with good drainage.

Give Armani a bit of room when planting - we recommend leaving 10-12 cms between bulbs. The planting depth should be at least three times deeper than the bulb is tall. The pointy end is the top...

If you want to keep your tulips for the following year, plant them DEEP (20 cms is fine) and deadhead as soon as the flowers fade. Many varieties will stay in the ground and multiply happily, but if you are in doubt, it is a good idea to lift them when the foliage has withered. Dry them off in a dark, dry, cool place, remove any dried soil and store them (in the dark at a low room temperature) in a tray or net, having first removed any diseased or damaged bulbs. Replant the following October/November.

Applying a high potash fertiliser during the growing season improves the flowering performance the next year. Lift and divide clumps of tulips if flowering is poor.
