Enjoy “heaven-scent” beauty with this double garden tulip! Ivory-white petals fade to a broadly flamed rose edge. The pink-on-pink color is so intense it almost glows. Plus, the blooms emit a sweet perfume that is unusual for a tulip! Be sure to plant extra for cutting so you can enjoy their beauty and aroma indoors! Flowers can be variable and all of the colors intensify as the flower matures, getting even more beautiful! A favorite for many gardeners. The soft flowers, sometimes with faint green speckles, appear late in the Tulip season on sturdy, relatively short stems. Truly splendid!
Double Late, Peony Flowered: Because of their shape, these tulips are also known as peony-flowered tulips. The flowers, which are always large and double, can easily reach a span of 4″ across. Double late tulips perform exceptionally well in regions having cold winters and late springs. Certain cultivars are suitable for forcing indoors. These tulips of many petals bloom late in the spring season.
Tulips look best in mass plantings. They make good container plants and are delightful cut flowers.
