Often mistaken for a fragrant, ruffled paeony rather than a tulip, ‘Angelique’ is a romantic-looking, soft-pink paeony-tulip.
The apple-blossom pink blooms open fully during April and May and make stunning cut flowers for pretty spring arrangements. Cut or pull the stems before buds fully open for a long vase-life.
Awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the RHS, ‘Angelique’ is a remarkable tulip which looks particularly effective when the bulbs are nestled closely together in pots and planted as a drift in the border.
Combine with fellow ice-cream shades for an angelic display, or with dark purple hues for delectable contrast.
Tulip ‘Avant Garde’ is a fresh, buttery-yellow paeony-flowered tulip. The sumptuous creamy blooms emit a delicate fragrance when they open in April and resemble large blowsy roses, or camellias.
Plant a sea of these beauties for a heavenly vision when they bloom in spring and fill vintage containers for pretty displays. Particularly beautiful when planted cheek to cheek with soft blue, lavender and pink hues.
The flowers are excellent for cutting and adding a lemony ruffle to bouquets and arrangements.
Layer upon velvety layer of plum and berry-toned petals make up the sumptuous, large flowerheads of paeony-tulip ‘Black Hero’.
More akin to an open garden rose or paeony, the opulent blooms are eye-catching in the late spring garden and look fabulous when teamed with vibrant orange or rust hues and pretty, soft pinks.
Fill your pots with the large bulbs and plant closely together for a luxurious display next April.
Long-lasting, both in the garden and in the vase with long, strong stems, tulip ‘Black Hero’ is perfect as an unusual cut flower.
Starting life as a saturated shade of violet-pink and fading to silvery lavender-blue with delicate veining, the larger than average blooms of tulip ‘Blue Diamond’ are an unmissable treat for the late spring garden.
Breath-taking when planted en masse in blocks and ribbons, and brilliant for spring containers, paeony-tulip ‘Blue Diamond’ is a perfect cut flower, ageing with grace both in the vase and in the garden.
Bright spring green foliage will intensify the colours as will orange and yellow hues.
Carnaval de Nice
Known as the Carnival Tulip, the exotic and fun striped tulip ‘Carnaval de Nice’ emerges from a bed of attractive variegated foliage during April and May.

Tulip ‘Carnaval de Nice’ has received high praise in the horticultural world thanks to eye-catching looks and excellent garden and cutting performance. This variety is the recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the RHS.

Tulip ‘Mount Tacoma’ is full of beauty and grace, yet is surprisingly tough and sturdy, unbothered by late spring rain and winds.

A classic favourite, tulip ‘Mount Tacoma’ pairs well with the marshmallow-pink tones of ‘Angelique’ and lemony ‘Avant Garde’ for a fresh-looking display.
A sport of Princess Irene, tulip ‘Orange Princess’ boasts huge, bowl-shaped double blooms in rich nasturtium-orange. Petals are marked with garnet-red flames, a green stripe, and an ochre-yellow base.
