Product Information

'Happy Generation' is an eye-catching Triumph type tulip, with gorgeous ivory-white, frilly-edged petals rising from yellow bases, with ruby-red flames running up the petal ribs. Irresistibly pretty, the flowers are set amid variegated foliage with blue-green, silver-margined leaves.

These long-lasting, classic cup-shaped blooms will pack a punch in mid to late spring beds, borders and containers. They are particularly striking when contrasted with other spring-flowering bulbs in solid colours. They also look stunning in a vase.

A versatile and hardy perennial, 'Happy Generation' is easy to grow, and a good choice for forcing for an early spring display.

Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs ready for planting, they are best planted in groups in borders or pots. Place in a sunny or lightly shaded position in rich, well-drained soil. Plant with bright yellow daffodils or tulips for a harmonious display.

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.
