Description

It may sound like a really crazy idea to suggest you take a match to your garden, but there’s method in this particular madness. An array of the aptly-named Tulip 'Match' will give the whimsical effect of a whole collection of burning matchsticks lighting up your garden – and as there’s no smoke there’s no fire! The burning matchstick effect is created by the triumph tulip flower’s creamy yellow base topped with flame-red petals.

Plant Tulip 'Match' in groups to increase the spectacular effect of individual burning flames, or use them as showy statement in an indoor floral arrangement.
