Mid Season Tulip Paul Scherer

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Exhibiting dramatic, moody, maroon-black blooms with a plush, velvet gleam, ‘Paul Scherer’ is a tulip worth making room for. This mid-season variety will be a real talking-point in any garden, with its incredible, Gothic, ebony petals set off by grey-green foliage. Maximise the breath-taking effect of their pitch-black colouring by planting in dramatic swathes, or use them as bold punctuation marks dotted throughout contrasting colour schemes. The tall, sturdy stems make stylish cut flowers, adding an air of mystery to floral arrangements and bouquets. ‘Paul Scherer’ has earned the accolade of an RHS Award of Garden Merit, proving itself to be both impressive and reliable.

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.
