- Time for planting
A very fine, maroon red flower, with a slight hint of purple on its outer petals, National Velvet is a Mid Season Tulip. As a form these Tulips are some of the most suitable for exposed positions due to their robust nature and resistance to adverse weather. As their name suggests they flower between April and May in the middle of the season which helps keeps colour going in the garden when planted with early flowering Tulips. National Velvet will grow to 40cm. It also holds an 'RHS Garden of Merit' award.
