Lily Flowering Tulip Ballerina

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



You may well catch the scent of tulip ‘Ballerina’ way before you see her dancing in the garden, as she emits a beautiful, spicy-citrus perfume on warm spring days. 

This stunningly elegant tulip blooms in a graceful lily-flowered shape.  Long, slender petals curve up and point outwards in zesty, marmalade-orange tones.

A super long-lasting cut flower which adds a stylish look to spring arrangements and bouquets.

Tulip ‘Ballerina’ has been granted a prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the RHS for its all-round excellent performance.

Combine with pastel Aquilegias, Jonquilla ‘Cosmopolitan’ and tulip ‘Black Parrot’ for a tasteful, architectural late spring show.  Plant the bulbs densely for an eye-catching effect.

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.
