Tulipa 'Abu Hassan'
triumph tulip bulbs
An April-flowering Triumph tulip with glowing terracotta-to-chestnut flowers lightened by glittering golden edges. Stately in form and name - the ultimate accessory for warmly toned wallflowers.
- Position: full sun
- Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: Apr-May
- Flower colour: warm red with a yellow trim
- Other features: excellent cut-flowers
- Hardiness: fully hardy
- Bulb size: 11/12
The rich, warm tones of this glorious tulip won't fail to delight. The goblet shaped flowers have mahogany-red petals each with a buttercup-yellow feathered edge. These bulbs are perfect for 'bruised' toned borders and compliment rich plums and deep purples.
- Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.
- Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy

Q:Early May flowering Tulips
Hello! I am looking for some stunning early May flowering tulips to be planted for a wedding. I was hoping for a combination to go with a deep purple-black tulip.
