May Flowering Tulip Rhapsody of Smiles

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Tulip ‘Rhapsody of Smiles’ boasts large, egg-shaped mango blooms delicately streaked with red.  Each flower appears slightly different to its neighbour thanks to the unique swirling flames of fruit salad tones.

This bright and bold tulip will add warmth to spring borders and pots and is fabulous for cutting and adding a pop of cheerful colour to bouquets and floral designs.

Plant next to crimson tulips such as ‘Red Proud’ and fringed ‘Pacific Pearl’ to enhance the scarlet markings.

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.
