Description

There's an art to creating harmonious planting schemes, selecting tulip varieties which flower in unison and that also complement each other in terms of colour, height and flower shape. If you’re looking for inspiration, try this ready-made tulip combo, comprising ever-popular tulips 'Queen of Night' and 'Apricot Foxx'. Both flowers have the classic cup-shaped single bloom, sitting on tall, sturdy stems and providing a heavenly night and day contrast, bringing together deep purple blooms which are almost as black as night with a glowing sunrise yellow and apricot.

During April and May, you can expect an effortlessly sensational display from this perfect mix: Tulip collection 'Night & Day'. Tulip 'Queen of Night' and Tulip 'Apricot Foxx' are well-known and popular varieties, easy to grow and reliable. Simply plant the bulbs together in big pots or large groups in the border in autumn and wait for the show to begin the following spring! These classic tulips are an absolute must for use as cut flowers—it’s a good idea to grow plenty because you simply won’t be able to resist snipping some stems to create a bunch or two of these charmers!
