Weeks of color with this bright and festive bulb combination that is a feast for the eye! To create such a lovely mass of color, you will only need 3 tulip cultivars: Tulip 'Angelique', a fragrant and long-lived, peony-shaped tulip; Tulip 'Couleur Cardinal' with eye-catching deep-red flowers; and the spectacular Tulip 'Curly Sue' with rich purple blooms changing color as they mature.

A planting idea that is ideal for beds and borders, edging or containers. All plants make excellent cut flowers and look fabulous in a vase too. Enjoy!
