Long-lasting Oxford boasts tall, sturdy stemmed bright, cheery red flowers with a golden-black base. The colour purity makes it a most popular flower and is often planted with a complimenting yellow tulip, such as Golden Oxford or pairs perfectly daffodils. Being a Darwin Hybrid means it is tall, and tough, and has some of the largest tulip flowerheads. Plant in sunny areas with good drainage for best growing results. Quite spectacular in gardens, borders, or pots. Great cut flowers for bouquets.
