Fusarino - Pink Triumph Tulips

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.

Fusarino in your Garden

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 cm - 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.

Planting Instructions

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

Give them a bit of room when planting - we recommend leaving 6-8 cms between bulbs which equates to about 50 per sq. metre. The planting depth should be at least three times deeper than the bulb is tall and it is better to plant too deep than too shallow (see below). 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.
