Apricot Beauty' is a single, cup-shaped, early flowering variety that has been given the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit. The blooms are a lovely delicate salmon-pink with orange margins, and look beautiful even when fading to soft, sunset tones just before the petals fall. It only grows to 35cm (14in) tall and is ideal for forcing for an indoor display, or planted in containers on the patio. Tulips are best planted in November as this minimises the risk of attack from the fungal disease, tulip fire, which causes the foliage to become distorted and covered with fuzzy, grey fungal growth and the flowers to either fail to open or to be marked with bleached spots. Any bulbs that become infected with this disease are best thrown away and the ground they were planted in should not be used to grow any tulips for several years. Remove the flowers as they fade to prevent plants wasting energy setting seed.
