Description

Make a masterpiece of your garden with the help of this talented Tulip 'Artist'. A palette of peach, orange, pink and plummy purple all blend beautifully into a perfect ombre, complemented by a blotchy green flame which streaks along every petal like watercolour. This tulip emerges in rich, juicy tones before settling down into a more muted and dusky peach. Broad petals each tipped with a dainty point gives the blooms a chic appearance.

Being slightly stocky in habit with shorter stems, Tulip 'Artist' stays sturdy during the season even in more exposed areas. Its shorter height makes it useful for growing in pots as well as in spaces towards the front of a border. Once the colours start to mellow and adopt more dusty hues, this tulip takes on a vintage vibe which is charming both in the garden as well as cut-flower arrangements. Try pairing Tulip 'Artist' with deep purple, lilac or dusky peach tulips to create a combination which will make your heart melt!

Tulip 'Artist' is here to paint the town orange—literally! The golden-orange hues of its beautiful petals and its delicate green feathering are truly a sight to behold. Not only is its appearance eye-catching, but it's strong and dependable too. Each flower is a perfect 7cm in diameter, with the plant eventually reaching a tall and proud 45cm. A majestic masterpiece placed in the heart of any garden, this viridiflora tulip is sure to have heads turning. Tulip 'Artist' has won a prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for its reliable garden performance, giving a long lasting and beatiful display and expecting very little in return!
