Unusual tulip, not at all like any tulips I purchased ever
I love the colors of this tulip. Is it possible it crossed with some yellow ones I purchased from another vendor and planted behind these? I've been cutting out the spent blooms, stems and all, after they're done because I read on here somewhere how to keep your tulips coming back every spring.
This is positioned in a row with some tulips from the Rain Parade collection from American Meadows. But there weren't any yellow or apricot shade at all.
The first photo is the tulip I have blooming today.
The second photo is what was about in that position last spring.
Third one is the bicolor one closer up. The second two photos were taken last spring. The first was taken today, April 28, 2013.
