Four top colour picks

Amateur Gardening - - Ask John Negus -

Tulipa ‘Dor­dogne’

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.

T. ‘Hamilton’

Fab­u­lous fil­i­gree fring­ing dec­o­rates the clear yel­low blooms of this May-flow­er­ing tulip, ris­ing to 20in (50cm).

T. ‘Sor­bet’

I re­ally want this tulip for the white flow­ers with rosy stripes and green tips. Will flower in May on stems 24in (60cm) tall.
