Description

You won’t have to wait for the scarlet red blooms before you begin to enjoy the beauties of botanical Tulip praestans 'Unicum'. The white striped foliage is already quite a sight to behold. But when they are crowned with their lovely flowers, they really are a magnificent sight. Many of the botanical tulips are less than spectacular, but that can’t be said for Tulip praestans 'Unicum'. They’re the exception to the rule in more ways than one. In the right garden conditions, they’ll even naturalise, popping up year after year. You can also lift them and store them, replanting your bulbs in autumn.
