Create dazzling spring borders like this one! Easy to replicate at home and low care, this elegant bulb combination will provide a delightful color show in late spring. It includes three graceful cultivars of the lily-flowered tulips group that seem to be dancing like elegant ballerinas over a carpet of Grecian windflowers (Anemone blanda). The white reflexed petals of tulip ‘White Triumphator’ offer a beautiful contrast to the mandarin orange flowers of tulip ‘Ballerina’ that is nicely complimented by the magenta goblet shaped tulip ‘Ballade’. Irresistible, isn’t it?

All have won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society!
