Here is another great Tulip for those that like something a bit different. It's Tulip Ice Cream which is on offer from www.gardeningdirect.co.uk at £14.99 for 5 bulbs.
Tulips,unlike some other spring bulbs including daffodils, can be planted as late as January and still produce amazing results, These eye catcing bulbs 'resemble a scoop of raspberry ripple ice cream overflowing its cone'. They are a real talking point, bringing colour to any container or windowbox in a sunny spot. Go on amaze your neighbours!
