‘ChouChou’ is a collection of the recently introduced ‘Curiosity’ tulips, an extremely attractive bicoloured variety with flowers that change colour as they age. It is a Triumph tulip, a cross between two exceptional and successful varieties, Single Early and Darwin. The result is a range of outstanding, robust tulips in a range of fabulous colours.
The large, ivory white blooms emerge with bright magenta edged petals. As they age the edges broaden until almost the entire flower has turned to rich, vibrant pink that looks spectacular against to long, sword shaped leaves. They will thrive in sun or partial shade, and are ideal in large planters or in flower borders, especially in large groups, and the long, straight stems make them wonderful for cutting for indoor displays.
Tulips are very easy to grow and care for and can be left in the ground after flowering as long as it’s well drained, so you’ll get another wonderful display the following year as they slowly naturalise and spread, or they can be dug up and stored over winter before replanting the following spring.
