Tulipa Peppermintstick has petals that look like a stick of edible rock, strongly cerise pink on the reverse and ivory white on the inside with a dark eye. The whole effect is lovely but remember that all the clusiana forms have reasonably large flowers on quite slender stems so plant them in sunny conditions where it is not too windy. This variety has been bred from Tulip clusiana, the "Lady Tulip " which originally came from Iran and Afghanistan.
Tulipa Peppermintstick has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant.
Tulipa Peppermintstick has small bulbs which should be planted about 3" (8cm) deep and 2-3" (5-8cm) apart in sunny well drained soil. Beware of squirrel or mice damage.
Height 10" (25cm)
