Product Information

One of the most eye-catching and unique tulips with deep purple, almost black, petals.

'Queen of the Night' looks great planted with white varieties to contrast against the distinctive dark colour, and help it to stand out even more.

Tulips are such a popular spring bulb, thanks to their easy growing nature and their ability to look eye-catching when planted in a mix of different colour variations. Fabulous colour combinations give vibrant life to gardens, patios or decking.

They also make great cut flowers in vases or containers on the windowsill to brighten up the house, while bringing the beautiful sights and smells of nature inside.

This fully hardy perennial tulip is easy to grow and will naturalise if left in the ground. Mix with contrasting colours for dramatic effect.

Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs ready for planting, they are best used in groups in borders or pots. Place in a sunny or lightly shaded position in rich, well-drained soil.

Top Tips

Which way up? Usually pointy end up, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will eventually right itself.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your tulip bulbs:

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back for flowers again next year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

Aftercare Advice for your tulip bulb collection:

  • Tulips can be planted as late as November, but it’s best to get your bulbs in the ground so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • Water frequently and if in pots ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.

Tidying your tulips:

  • Once flowering is over, it is important to leave the leaves on your tulips until they have died right down, usually by early summer. This allows the bulb to store food and produce flowers the following year.
  • While it is recommended that bulbs are dug up and dried in the summer sun, modern thought is that there is no real benefit from doing this and many gardeners now leave bulbs where they are.
