Late blooming peony tulip. Glorious with La Belle Epoque, Silver Cloud. Rich saturated blackberry meets raspberry with green feathering on the outer petals.
Large blooms and sturdy stems.
Lightly fragrant, too.w. Super dramatic with soft pink. For a similar early bloomer see Palmyra.
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.
