Tulip Violet Beauty
Along with Allium Cowanii and Triumph Tulip Gwen I also planted a whole bunch of Tulip Violet Beauty...
A beautiful chalice shaped flower of translucent lavender blue kissed with ivory at the base. The colours will vary as the flower ages tingeing its violet petals with the lightest haze of rose and blue. A strong and sturdy variety which mark the end of the Spring season. Thanks to their durable nature they stand up well to any inclement weather conditions.
Plant bulbs in well dug soil about 8-10cm deep and approx 15cm apart. It is often beneficial to use a little bonemeal or super phosphate mixed in with the soil. Tulips delight during their growth in a sunny location.
After the tulips have bloomed and when leaves fade and turn brown the bulbs can be lifted, dried, cleaned and stored in a cool place until planting time. Tulips should not be grown in the same soil for several years, so replace with fresh soil every other year.
