Description

Few tulips offer such deep, vibrant, luxuriant colouring as the beautiful Tulip 'Negrita Double'. Its vivid petals are royal purple with bluish undertones, but also streaked and veined with a deeper shade of beetroot-purple. This recently-introduced tulip is a beautiful peony-type, and holds its flowers on short, stout stems. When planted in groups it makes a wonderful display. Tulip 'Negrita Double' is suitable for beds, borders or patio containers, and will mix well with contrasting colours, such as whites, yellows or orange; or complementary colours including pinks and softer lilacs. For a really fiery look to your garden, grow it next to deep reds, oranges and different shades of purple.  

This beautiful tulip is wonderful as a cut flower, too; its strong, tall stems are well able to carry the heavy flowers. Tulip 'Negrita Double' is in tulip Division 11, known as the Double Late Group, and it is a double form of the Triumph tulip variety 'Negrita'.
