Carnival de Nice
Carnival de Nice has been a favourite the world over since its introduction back in the 1950's.
It has remarkably large double blooms of white, feathered and flamed brilliant red, with an interior yellow centre. Quite the spectacle.
Flowering late season. 35-45cm tall.
Peony tulips have full, luxuriant blooms that resemble peonies - double the petals for double the beauty. They’re some of the latest tulip varieties to flower, opening fairly late in the Spring season.
As well as adding a touch of elegance to spring borders and containers, peony tulips make fantastic cut flowers.
Tulips love colder climates, but also do incredibly well in warmer climates (even as far North as the Cape!) - if you don’t have a cold climate like ourselves, we recommend chilling your Tulip Bulbs for 6 to 8 weeks prior to planting. This will trick them into thinking they are having their Winter period, and prolong their stems and Flowering period.
