Tulip Triumph Curiosity has purple flowers with a broad creamy white blotch on each petal.
Triumph tulips such as Tulip Triumph Curiosity are a popular group of tulips due to their extensive range of colours. Tulips make a stunning show when planted in groups of 10 or more. Ideal for bedding schemes, they are perfect for formal plantings in stately homes which open to the public. Triumph tulips come into their own just as the daffodils are giving up their domination of early spring.
When planting ensure the soil is loosened to a depth of 20cm and is free draining. In heavier soils the addition of grit and rotted humus material provides extra drainage. Plant tulips with the pointed bit upwards at a depth of 15cms and 10cms apart.
Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to get the best from them. Ideal foods are well rotted manures, tomato feed and bone meal.
Best to plant tulips when the ground starts to cool down which is often in November. However although planting earlier or later will not effect performance. Tulips do benefit from using bulb starter when first planting.
