Tulip Blackjack Bulbs
If you are looking for a darkly, romantic tulip then Blackjack might well be the answer!
Its elegant oval shaped flower is a glossy, deep, deep purple - so deep that it could be mistaken for black - and it has the sheen of a raven's wing on it.
The flower sways on a 50 cm stem giving it model-like proportions. Its fresh, green foliage supports the main act and is narrower leaved than many other tulips.
Blackjack is a Triumph tulip and so is mid-season - flowering for most of April, a reliable perennial bloomer and definitely one of the thoroughbreds in the tulip stable.
