Product Information

‘ChouChou’ is a collection of the recently introduced ‘Curiosity’ tulips, an extremely attractive bicoloured variety with flowers that change colour as they age. It is a Triumph tulip, a cross between two exceptional and successful varieties, Single Early and Darwin. The result is a range of outstanding, robust tulips in a range of fabulous colours.

The large, ivory white blooms emerge with bright magenta edged petals. As they age the edges broaden until almost the entire flower has turned to rich, vibrant pink that looks spectacular against to long, sword shaped leaves. They will thrive in sun or partial shade, and are ideal in large planters or in flower borders, especially in large groups, and the long, straight stems make them wonderful for cutting for indoor displays.

Tulips are very easy to grow and care for and can be left in the ground after flowering as long as it’s well drained, so you’ll get another wonderful display the following year as they slowly naturalise and spread, or they can be dug up and stored over winter before replanting the following spring.

Supplied as 10 bulbs, size 11/12, ready to plant in autumn, growing to a height of 45 cm (18 in) and width of 15 cm (6 in).

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.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

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.
  • 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

  • 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.
