Tulip, ‘Abba’

Abba’ is a glowing, tomato-red, double flowering tulip with dark red flames. ‘Abba’ has been described as “a lusty peony-flowered tulip so full-flowered and earthy, it’s called the ‘hot tomato’ tulip”. These fully double flowers make a big show with a lot of color impact, yet they retain their grace in the garden and in bouquets. Tulip ‘Abba’ also has a lovely, heady fragrance. These are terrific when planted in mass or in combination with Double Early Tulip ‘Monsella’.

Double Early, Peony Flowered Tulips: These are beloved tulips that have double flowers; short, sturdy stems; and an early flowering period. They can be used in many ways, but are especially favored for beds and containers where they produce brilliant color effects. On a sunny day when the flowers are entirely open, they measure about 3-4″ across.

The variety of colors available in this group is not as great as it is for other groups, however, its double flowering more than compensates for this.
