Tulip 'Rococo' - Tulipa

DESCRIPTION: Frilled ruched flowers, deep red splashed with gold and lime, on compact stems.
USE IN: Plant as a flowering border below deciduous trees or group closely in pots for bright spring flowering colour.
PLANTING: Tulips thrive in free draining neutral to alkaline soil. Prepare clay soil using a clay-breaker; add lime to acid soils; and dig in well-composted manure or mulch to help with drainage. Add grit or gravel to your planting holes if your soil is heavy, or plant up into containers. Cover soil with a good layer of mulch to help regulate soil temperature. Bulbs prefer an open sunny location or filtered sun in warmer climates. Plant tulips towards the end of autumn for best results.
CARE: Once planted, water the soil to set the bulb in place. An occasional light watering is all that's needed until the first flowers appear. Water and feed weekly or if the soil becomes dry, give a good deep water. Once flowering is finished leave plants to die back, it's not the prettiest sight but don't be tempted to trim the yellowing foliage. The nutrients are being drawn back into the bulbs for next year. When the bulbs die back completely remove spent foliage and leave in place for next season. Or remove for storage - gently dig up bulbs, wash soil away using water and a soft brush for stubborn spots. Place bulbs in a cool shady spot to dry, then store in a dark, well ventilated room. Paper bags are ideal, remember to label each variety!
CLIMATE: Needs a cold winter spell. Hardy to -10C
