Product Information

'Blushing Lady', with its petals of gentle salmon-pink blending into a soft yellow edge, is one of the prettiest of tulip varieties to bring harmony to your beds, borders or pots. Long-lasting blooms, flourishing from late April into early May, make this variety an ideal choice for extended springtime flowering.

With open-cupped, single blooms, they provide a delicate foil for other late spring-flowering bulbs and sit happily within elegant or contrasting colour schemes.

Their appealing blush flowers are perfectly framed by soft green foliage and provide excellent flowers for your vase.

An easy-to-grow hardy perennial, they thrive in rich fertile, well-drained conditions, enjoying full or afternoon sun.

Supplied as a pack of 12 bulbs, plant generously in the autumn to enjoy flowering well into spring, with enough for plenty of cut flowers.

Top Tips

Which way up? Usually pointy end up, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will eventually right itself.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your tulip bulbs:

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they'll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back for flowers again next year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

Aftercare Advice for your tulip bulb collection:

  • Tulips can be planted as late as November, but it's best to get your bulbs in the ground so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • Water frequently and if in pots ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.

Tidying your Tulips:

  • Once flowering is over, it is important to leave the leaves on your tulips until they have died right down, usually by early summer. This allows the bulb to store food and produce flowers the following year.
  • While it is recommended that bulbs are dug up and dried in the summer sun, modern thought is that there is no real benefit from doing this and many gardeners now leave bulbs where they are.
