According to Persian legend, tulips sprang from drops of blood shed in the name of love, hence the blooms have long been a symbol of ardour and devotion. The tulip ‘Love Song’ burns with passionate, fiery red, flushed by hues of carmine and copper. Plump buds open into bowl-shaped blooms, revealing an inner heart of gold and gilded edges to each petal. Beneath bobbing flower heads, the broad foliage is streaked with decorative maroon markings. This early bloomer will ignite your display in containers, rockeries, and along the edges of borders. ‘Love Song’ is a serenade to the beginning of spring.
‘Showwinner’ is a champion bloom to bring a touch of theatre to your garden in early spring. Sensational flowers of ruby red beam above stout foliage with burgundy stripes. The striking crimson blooms will steal the limelight in your container and window box displays. This Kaufmanniana variety is reliably perennial and will naturalise into resplendent swathes if left undisturbed in rockeries and borders. ‘Showwinner’ is an apt name for this illustrious variety, which has been granted the venerated RHS Award of Garden Merit. Encore!
Bursting onto the scene in a flash of joyous colour, ‘Stresa’ is one of the first tulips to appear, blooming alongside crocuses and narcissi. Dazzling canary-yellow flowers are stamped with broad flares of pillar-box red, accompanied by handsome, delicately marbled foliage. Pointed buds show off the decorative underside to each petal, before opening fully in the sunshine with beaming, golden faces. ‘Stresa’ makes a bold accent for window boxes, containers, rockeries, and at the front of borders. This stand-out variety boasts the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit for its proven performance and high value in the garden.
