A brilliant orange, Cairo is a Triumph tulip. On close inspection you will see a combination of fine orange and yellow stripes which contribute to the glowing presence of this garden gem.

Triumphs are hard working tulip bulbs 

  • Flower in the middle of spring
  • 40-45cm tall
  • Classic single tulip shape
  • The largest range of colours
  • Perfect cut flowers
  • Long lasting (upto 3 weeks)

Tulip Cairo has proven itself to be a worthy perennial tulip. It will flower for a number of years. Although we do recommend removing any failing tulips after 2-3 years and replacing them.

How to care for perennial tulips

  • Remove the flowers and see heads after flowering
  • Let the leaves turn brown
  • Remove the foliage once it has died
  • Feed the bulbs after flowering and in autumn
  • Remove any small bulblets to give the bigger tulip bulb more room to grow. 

A large crop of Cairo will certainly give your garden a warm glow. Equally these tulip bulbs mix extremely well with other Triumph tulip bulbs, flowering at the same time.
