Stately stems topped with the nearest-of-black blooms appear like tall, dark and mysterious visitors to the garden during April, with red-tinged petals that glow like embers when they catch the spring sunshine. The stems of triumph Tulip 'Continental' provide a wonderful added detail, with an eye-catching dark purple middle section which fades to green at both the base and the flowering ends. This magnificent new tulip certainly deserves its place within the triumph group, as well as in the garden.

Flowering a little earlier than similar black tulips, they really do triumph above other spring plants, be it planted in containers or in bold swathes running through the border. Reaching a height of around 60cm without compromising its upright nature, the sturdy stems of Tulip 'Continental' hold the flowers up high like trophies throughout their season.

Not only do these magnificent tulips bring an air of mystery and drama to the garden, but they make wonderful cut flowers too, shining in all their glory in a tall, contemporary vase or adding a handsome lowlight to mixed bouquets.
