Description

Perk up your spring planting schemes with this peppy little coral-coloured botanical Tulip aucherinana or Aucher's tulip. In true botanical tulip style, Tulip aucheriana is all about natural beauty and less fuss—it’s a dainty gem that will return year after year. Find a good home for it in pots, gravel areas or in friendly clusters near the front of a border and look forward to seeing its starry flowers shine each spring!

There are so many gorgeous combinations associated with this colouring—anything with copper, peach or bronze tones really sings when you harmonise with a soft coral tone like this. Flowering in mid spring, botanical varieties like Tulip aucheriana usually flower a little earlier than hybrid tulips, but there is often a good overlap. Incorporate them into layered tulip pot to kick-start the display a little earlier, or give them a special spot of their own where they can have their moment in the spotlight!
