Candle in the Night Mix

Candle in the Night Mix

This early-blooming mix features 'Stresa', one of the first tulips to bloom in spring, and dark purple 'Grand Maitre' crocuses. The cool deep hue of the crocuses plays nicely against the blazing color palette of the tulips as they bloom together. A lively mix that is even better planted in large groups or drifts.
