Product Description

'Happy Generation' is an eye-catching Triumph type tulip, with gorgeous ivory-white, frilly-edged petals rising from yellow bases, with ruby-red flames running up the petal ribs. Irresistibly pretty, the flowers are set amid variegated foliage with blue-green, silver-margined leaves.

These long-lasting, classic cup-shaped blooms will pack a punch in mid to late spring beds, borders and containers. They are particularly striking when contrasted with other spring-flowering bulbs in solid colours. They also look stunning in a vase.

A versatile and hardy perennial, 'Happy Generation' is easy to grow, and a good choice for forcing for an early spring display.

Supplied as a pack of 15 bulbs ready for planting, they are best planted in groups in borders or pots. Place in a sunny or lightly shaded position in rich, well-drained soil. Plant with bright yellow daffodils or tulips for a harmonious display.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Choose a sheltered position to protect from heavy rain and strong winds.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

 

Care Guide

  • Plant in the autumn, 10-15cm deep, 15cm apart, in fertile, well-drained soil, in full sun or light shade.
  • Keep well-watered through the growing season.
  • Remove the flower heads once they have faded and apply a weekly fertiliser for best results next season.
  • Once the foliage has begun to die back, dig up the bulbs for storing if not leaving in the ground. Clean the soil from the bulbs and discard any that appear damaged or diseased. Allow to dry thoroughly, then store at 18-20C (65-68F), in a dark, well-ventilated place for replanting in the autumn.
