Named after the Rolls Royce model, this tulip is truly elegant. Violet blooms soften to silvery lilac as they mature on dark purple stems. A wonderful mixer for the garden and vase this beauty is amazing with all the darker shades and rich pinks. Awesome with Black Hero. Long stems.
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.
