    Tulips look wonderful weaving through borders or massed in pots, but they can also amazing against a contrasting background.  My own house is off-white weatherboarding with pea green windows and doors, so dark colours are the order of the day here. I’ve mixed all the bulbs together for a random effect and the different heights will allow all the blooms to  strut their stuff.

    • Black Hero – maroon black double late, flowering May, 60cm tall
    • China Pink – sugary pink lily-flowered, flowering April-May, 35-40cm tall
    • Recreado – deep purple single late,  flowering April-May, 45cm tall
    • Ronaldo – deep maroon purple triumph type, flowering April-May – 40cm tall
