There is a difference between this one and Charming Beauty. I can't put my finger on it but it is two times the lovely when these are planted together. I will observe more closely this season so i can put my finger on the je nais se quois. Peony type with varying shades of cream, egg yolk, buff, apricot rose and peach. Opens to the typical ruffled double bloom that resembles a garden rose or peony. She pales as she matures.
She is truly one of the most charming and romantic tulips in the trough. Suitable for cutting, forcing, or planting in the garden.
Tulips grow best in zones 4-7 where colder winters are more common. When planting outdoors most classes of tulips do not return every year, with the exception of the Darwin Hybrids and species. We grow them in pots and crates and compost the bulbs after they bloom.
