For high voltage colour in early spring, few flowers can compare to the luscious ‘Monte Orange’. With multiple, overlapping tiers of marmalade tinted petals, these Early Double tulips seem lit from within by a golden glow.

Stocky, sturdy stems hold the large, lavish flower heads upright, even in exposed locations. These vibrant tulips make an eye-catching addition to window boxes, containers, and bedding displays. Try planting ‘Monte Orange’ in striking single colour drifts, in a ‘hot’ scheme of reds and yellows or dotted amongst contrasting deep purples.
