Description

Botanical tulips come in surprisingly lovely colour combinations, and Tulip 'Garden of Clusius' is no exception with its dashing three tone effect. This diminutive little tulip creates quite a splash for its size, with its pretty cerise pink tipped petals, that become soft white halfway down and end in a delightful dollop of egg-yolk yellow at the base. Producing multiple flowering stems per bulb, this little beauty is also gorgeously offset by its vigorous strappy grey-grey foliage.  

Flowering in early spring, botanical tulips come in surprisingly lovely colour combinations, and Tulip 'Garden of Clusius' will bring a dash of bright colour that you can enjoy from a collection of pots on the patio, or in a sunny free-draining spot in the garden. Smaller species tulips like Tulip 'Garden of Clusius' come in surprisingly lovely colour combinations, an can look charming planted as an edging around a deciduous shrub, in little hollows around tree stumps or along pathways. They are impeccably behaved, often naturalising well without overwhelming other plants, are tough and hardy, and require very little care—a perfect choice for the time-pressed gardener.
