Lily Flowering Tulip Purple Dream

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Tulip ‘Purple Dream’ is a truly regal tulip with tall, elegant violet blooms.

The opulent purple flowers are tapered and slim with pointed petals which open up as the blooms age and unfold, basking in the late spring sunshine. 

Excellent for cutting thanks to strong stems which can easily withstand wind and rain. 

For a contemporary and vibrant late spring show, combine with punchy orange shades in the garden such as paeony-tulip ‘Orange Princess’ and parrot tulip ‘Amazing Parrot’.

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.
