Notes on Tulipa 'Red Shine'

"A late tiffany lamp of ruby-red glass shaded in darker tones. This elegant, lily-flowered tulips towers above the others - outshining and outlasting them."

Beautiful cheerful tulips


I planted these in a pot as I was about to move house so I could take them with me. They made a gorgeous block of colour in the pot.




They Do Shine


The bulbs arrived well packaged and healthy. I haven't had this tulip before. They are in flower now and are a gorgeous shade of red, and do seem to shine. They seem sturdy and stand up to the wind which we always seem to have here. I have them planted in a brown rustic clay pot by the front door, with Prinses Irene tulips which are orange. I wasn't sure if the colours would work together, but they look fantastic, a real burst of vibrant colour. It gives a real welcome when I arrive home. I just regret not putting some bronzey coloured grasses in the pot with them.
