Tulip Species Clusiana Cynthia

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Otherwise known as the ‘golden lady tulip’, ‘Clusiana Cynthia’ is a petite, gilded beauty, exuding elegance and style. Flashes of raspberry red and chartreuse green are painted on a buttercup yellow background. Elongated, pointed buds open to fluted, star-shaped blooms on slender stems above fine foliage. Despite a refined appearance, this Species tulip is resilient and vigorous, boasting the accolade of an RHS Award of Garden Merit for reliability in the garden. These enchanting blooms are perfect for filling patio pots for an early display, and to dot amongst grass and borders for a tapestry of colour as the bulbs gradually naturalise.

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.
