Rich Royal Orange. Although this is an "old" variety, it is still one my favorites. Because of its many fine qualities (high bud count, large flowers, multiple stems, reliable performance) has been used in developing modern hybrids such as Hadeco's "Double Six"

Bulbs commercially graded as 24-26 cm. This size generally produces 2 blooming stems.  Healthy bulbs newly imported from the Netherlands.

Planting Instructions:

If planting in pots make sure your bulb neck is above the soil. This gives the roots more soil under the bulb to grow into. Sometimes the whole bulb is above the soil. Water well after planting and then water only after the soil starts to dry out. Once every week or so should be enough. Try not to get water in the neck of the bulb. In Arizona we plant them outside after they are done blooming indoors, with some dappled shade, after danger of frost is past. In frosty areas (zones 7-8) plant with the bulb deep enough so the top is below the soil frost line. Mulch helps to keep the soil unfrozen in winter and moist in summer. One UK grower uses several inches of temporary mulch through the winter in an area that would otherwise be too cold for overwintering. They are very drought and heat resistant and will re-bloom naturally in the spring once they are established.
