Tulip Species Batalinii Bright Gem

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



The primrose yellow flowers of the Species tulip ‘Batalinii Bright Gem’ are perfectly illuminated by warm spring sunshine, highlighting the streaks of amber and apricot which suffuse the petals. This dainty jewel features fine, silvery foliage, enhancing the brightness of the blooms. Despite their petite size and delicate leaves, Species tulips are resilient and truly perennial, happily naturalising amongst grass and in borders. ‘Batanii Bright Gem’ tulips are equally effective dotted in containers, where you will be able to admire their bantam beauty close at hand. Flowering slightly later than other Species varieties, this charming Heirloom tulip will extend your display throughout spring.

Care Guide

November is the optimum month for planting Tulip bulbs. The cooler late-autumn temperatures help to keep disease at bay, whilst still allowing time for your bulbs to put roots down before spring. Any well-drained, fertile soil is perfect for Tulips, ideally in full sun or part shade. Plant the bulbs 10-20cm deep, spaced 10-20cm apart. A piece of chicken wire or mesh can be placed on top of the soil or pots after planting if squirrels or rodents are a problem in your area. After flowering in March to May, remove withered stems, foliage and any fallen petals to promote good plant health and apply a top dressing of high-potash fertiliser in late winter.
