Product Description

With its unusual and striking flowers, ‘Banana Cream’ is certain to attract a lot of attention. The huge blooms look just like banana ice cream!

Beginning as large, globe shaped green buds that gradually become more pink, they burst open to bright banana yellow, petal packed double flowers. The petals are wonderfully ruffled and the flowers are so large that they have to be seen to be believed. The combination of the stunning yellow sitting on the green and pink cup is extraordinary!

Once open, the flowers are long lasting, and the relatively compact size makes ‘Banana Cream’ ideal for growing in planters and window boxes as well as in spring borders. They are also excellent cut flowers and make stunning indoor displays.

Supplied as 3 bulbs, size 11, ready to plant in autumn, growing to a height of 35 cm (14 in) and width of 15 cm (6 in).

Top Tips

Which way up? Usually pointy end up, but if you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side and it will eventually right itself.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Tulip Bulbs

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 5cm tall bulbs need to be planted 10cm below the surface of the ground and 20cm apart.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back for flowers again next year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.

Aftercare Advice

  • Tulips can be planted as late as November, but it’s best to get your bulbs in the ground so that they can establish a good root system before the weather becomes too cold.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • Water frequently and if in pots ensure that the compost doesn't dry out.

Tidying your Tulips

  • Once flowering is over, it is important to leave the leaves on your tulips until they have died right down, usually by early summer. This allows the bulb to store food and produce flowers the following year.
  • While it is recommended that bulbs are dug up and dried in the summer sun, modern thought is that there is no real benefit from doing this and many gardeners now leave bulbs where they are.
