When it’s in flower, Tulip 'Red Hunter' will almost certainly be the first plant to catch your eye as you enter the garden. In mid-spring, bright, scarlet-red blooms, each with a black central blotch, are held on short stems. The bases of the plants are surrounded by attractive, upright, narrow, grey-green foliage. This tulip may be short — at just 15-20cm — but what it lacks in height, it more than makes up for in vibrancy!

It is excellent for providing colour on a rockery or at the front of a bed or border. It is best planted in groups for bold flashes of colour. It is also good seen close-up, so is recommended for using in a patio container or pot. Although Tulip 'Red Hunter' will prefer a position in full sun, it is fully tolerant of some shade during the day.

Tulipa linifolia (Batalinii Group) 'Red Hunter' is in the Tulip Group 15 (Miscellaneous). It is considered such a good plant, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) have awarded it a coveted Award of Garden Merit.

At a young age, Hein Huijg bought 10 kilos of tulip bulbs for 850 Dutch guilders from his savings. After one year, he was able to triple the yield and he kept 20 kilos of his harvest. Hein invested his profit in other tulip bulbs. This was the start of the bulb company 'Huijg Breezand' in Breezand, The Netherlands. Around the end of the eighties, John and Raymond Huijg (see photo) became partners. The company has grown to over 45 hectares of flower bulbs nowadays!
