Tulipa 'Apricot Beauty'

Plant details

Tulipa 'Apricot Beauty' bears single, cup-shaped, early flowers in a delicate salmon-pink with orange margins, fading to soft, sunset tones just before the petals fall. A compact tulip, it grows only to 35cm tall and is ideal for forcing for an indoor display, or planted in containers on the patio.

For best results grow Tulipa 'Apricot Beauty' 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.

5 Star, I have this Tulip together with Tulip La Belle Epoque, Spring Green and Exotic Emperor planted in a narrow ribbon border at the base of a stone wall all under planted with Pulmonaria Sissinghurst White. This early spring display is followed by Allium Christophii and Digitalis purpurea Suttons Apricot and finally Hydrangea Arborescens Annabelle, and I am pleased as punch
