Tulip La Courtine – has large canary yellow heads with a simple thin burning flame of red. It is unusual to see the flaming flashes in single late tulips. You can extend the historic tulip colourings of the Rembrandt group into April. The tulip head is a nice elongated cup shape and the stems are nice and long. They look lovely planted in pots, but bright yellow also is a good colour to pair with reds, purples or blacks.
How to plant
Plant any time between September and December. It is recommended to plant after the first frost when the soil is cooler to reduce the impact of any diseases or rotting. Cultivated bulbs are rigorously checked and it is rare for them to carry diseases even though pesticides have been banned in their development for many years. You can plant as late as January.
Our guide recommends planting at around 10cm deep and 60-70 per square metre. This is only a guide. You can plant a little deeper to hide from squirrels and you can squeeze more in if you want a more densely packed display (in pots for example). You can watch a quick video here
Tulip La Courtine enjoy full sun but cope very well in semi shade. They like moist free draining soil of any type. Over winter it is important that they don’t get too much water and are not allowed to dry out. This will impair the flower when it comes to May.
If you are planting in pots make sure you use a good soil with drainage at the bottom. Peat free compost alone can be difficult to maintain the right moisture levels. Mix in grit, topsoil and fertile compost. Use a large pot because tulips produce a lot of roots. The larger the post the easier it is for the soil to retain moisture and drain freely.
