Description

Indulge in the extra-sweet, honeyed scent of Tulip 'Double Sugar' next spring. Dreamy layers of candy pink petals surround a swirling creamy-white centre, with the tiniest touch of primrose at the heart of each flower. This fragrant double late sweetie unfurls its bonbon blooms from April to May, bringing that hazy, soft-focus feel to the garden. Despite its delicate, romantic looks, Tulip 'Double Sugar' is robust and reassuringly sturdy. Strong stems support its long-lasting flower heads so you can revel in this candyland of petal perfection for longer. 

It should come as no surprise then that this multi-petalled Tulip 'Double Sugar' is a sweet cut flower which you, or whoever you give them to, will adore. This fancy tulip with large double flowers will last well in a sheltered spot in a border or in patio containers. In groups, their fragrance is more powerful and their blooms look extra luxe—if you plant plenty, you’ll have enough to enjoy in the garden and some spare stems to pick if you’re tempted!
