A deep blackberry-purple double tulip, a real stunner and one of our favourites. Apparently the double form of Queen of Night. It shimmers in the sun and looks almost black in shade. Limited stock.

Type:double late tulip
Care: plant in autumn 10 – 15cm deep, after the first cold snap, the deeper the better for the tulip to return each year. Add grit to wet or heavy soils.
