Description

If you’re thinking about creating a beautiful combination to enjoy next spring, then let us inspire you with this classy collection. Just like the song, 'Penny Lane' is truly harmonious with a cheery pop that will brighten your day. Comprising Tulip 'Showwinner' with Crocus 'Jeanne d’Arc', this red and white flower duo brings an old favourite colour combo right up to date. When creating a planting combination, you need to think about height, flower shape and flowering times as well as colour.

Each 'Penny Lane' collection contains:

  • 10 x Tulip 'Showwinner'
  • 20 x Crocus 'Jeanne d’Arc'

With this collection, we’ve done all that for you so all you have to do is plant the bulbs together at the same time and wait for the display to come alive in spring. The varied heights of this collection gives you a dense underplanting of white crocus which shows off the stately bright red fluted tulips which float just above. This outstanding collection looks perfect in borders or containers alike, putting on a great performance in full sun or partial shade.
