Description

Flames of red fire light up your garden – but there’s no need to call the fire brigade. 'Red Riding Hood' tulips have come to play in your spring flower beds. You’ll have noticed your fairy-tale beauties from the moment they began to sprout. The bold foliage is gorgeously striped with purple, forming a dramatic setting for the flaming blooms which are carried on compact, sturdy flower stems just above the dramatic foliage. Group your Red Riding Hood tulips in pots, or plant your little attention-getters as a bold feature in beds. Now just add water and wait. That’s how easy it is to grow Tulips.
