Early Single Tulip Candy Prince

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



With its soft lilac blooms, ‘Candy Prince’ resembles the iconic Parma Violet sweet. Each dainty petal is finely etched with deeper purple feathering, enhanced by a backdrop of silver-green foliage. Unlike some of the more gregarious tulips, this variety has a demure, muted air and makes an excellent partner to stronger characters such as ‘Negrita’. Alone, the subtle, pale blooms of ‘Candy Prince’ bring a feeling of cool peace and tranquillity to borders and container displays. Despite its delicate looks, sturdy stems remain robust even in inclement weather. Be sure to snip a few stems to enjoy the calming, pastel shades indoors.

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.
