Tulip Shirley is a classic tulip variety, beginning life as an ivory white to slightly yellow with a delicate purple margin. As Shirley matures, the purple margin spreads and fades into a purple to pink blush all over the flower. Standing atop tallgrey-green stems and decorated with lance-shaped foliage, Shirley is a real show stopper which provides a range of different looks throughout its lifetime. For a spectrum of purple shades, we recommend planting Shirey with the deep maroon Queen ofNight, the bright purple Negrita and the white flamed purple Zurel.

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.
