Four top colour picks
Large May blooms are a silky wash of pink blushing to apricot orange at the margins, on stems 26in (65cm) tall.
T. ‘Purple Prince’
Purple hues sit well in the spring garden and this mid-April single is subtly two-toned, on stems 15in (38cm) tall.
Fabulous filigree fringing decorates the clear yellow blooms of this May-flowering tulip, rising to 20in (50cm).
I really want this tulip for the white flowers with rosy stripes and green tips. Will flower in May on stems 24in (60cm) tall.
