Description

Good things come in small packages, and that’s certainly the case for this delicate little wonder, Tulip humilis 'Coerulea Oculata Alba'. This rare and special variety is petite, pretty and fascinating up close. Pointed pure white petals form a classic cup shape, centred with an intense violet-blue eye for that subtle dash of colour. Best of all, plant this perennial tulip and you can enjoy it over and over again as it reappears each spring for a repeat show which, as they establish, gets more fabulous every time.

Tulip humilis 'Coerulea Oculata Alba' is perfect for planting in large groups in pots where it will have the chance to show off its full potential, and also ideal for combining in borders with other dainty spring bulbs, like chionodoxa and woodland anemones. If you have a rockery, tuck these gems into spare nooks and crannies and they’ll be most at home!
