Tulipa 'Fancy Frills' is an outstanding tulip, bearing ivory white flowers with rose stripes and fringe, creating a rich medley of colour. It's a perfect tulip for growing in spring container displays and makes a pretty cut flower. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

For best results grow Tulipa 'Fancy Frills' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Plant bulbs in November. Once they have flowered, water regularly and remove blooms as they fade to prevent plants wasting energy setting seed.
