Plant of the month - Tulip "Candy Prince"

Updated: Aug 28, 2023

If you're looking for a tulip that stands out from the crowd, look no further than

"Candy Prince". This elegant variety boasts a classic tulip egg shaped flower,

calming pink tones with delicate lavender lacing on the petals. One useful

characteristic of the plant is that its colour sits harmoniously with many other spring

flowers, making it invaluable when designing spring borders.

Like most tulips "Candy Prince" should be planted in full sun between September and December, 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart. It is fully hardy, withstanding

temperatures as low as -20°C and its stout stems also make it a bit more wind

resistant than some of the more delicate tulips. Once the foliage has died, lift the

bulbs and store them in a greenhouse, ready for replanting in autumn.

It's important to note that, like many bulbs, Tulip "Candy Prince" can be toxic to pets

such as cats, dogs, and horses. So be sure to plant it in a location that is safe for

your furry friends.

“Candy Prince"is a useful spring plant that “plays nicely” with most other plants, and

adds a touch of elegance to your garden.
