Musing on gardening and life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
It is a beauty, VP, with those multiple petals and smoky coloring. Those pesky labels! :-)Frances
Looks like my 'Blue Diamond' tulips.
Gorgeous - voluptuous it most definitely is.
Well, it most certainly is very... urm.... green... lol.Wonderful colour, I can easily see why you've fallen in love!
Are they all like that or just that one - might be a sport. Why not have a look at Avon Bulbs site to see if you can spot it?
You are so fortunate. When I got a mis-labelled tulip it was a hideous and enormous yellow one with red stripes. Yours is a beauty. If you find out what it is, let me know, I want to order it!
It's a beauty...gail
Aren't those absolutely the BEST kind so surprises??
Hi everyone - yes it's a beauty :)This seems to be a commonly occuring problem - CG has posted on this topic this week and now I find that my red lily flowered tulips are bright yellow fat tulips!Niels - I think you could be right, thank you. PG - they're all like that and it looks like Niels has identified it. My picture matches the one on the Avon Bulbs website. Must remember to bring the picture along to Malvern to see if they can confirm it.
Beautiful! Double Tulips are my favourites, and more are on my shopping list for this Autumn. It could be Lilac Perfection? x
Very nice VP, I'm loving all the different flower shapes and colours of the tulip just now. You've probably guessed that though :-D
Hi, let's start a conversation - right here, right now! If you have a question, I'll also endeavour to get back to you over at your place.If anyone is having problems leaving comments, do contact me on vegplotting at gmail dot com or @malvernmeet if a quick tweet is more convenient for you.Thanks xxxMy general policy re commentsI value genuine commenters for the conversation they bring. Those aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites (thankfully rare) will be removed.Blog posts are kept open for your Comments for as long as possible - for at least 3 months. I've reluctantly taken the decision if a post comes in for a sp@m attack after that time, I'll remove its Comments facility. I've found genuine comments are rarely left after 3 months, but dozens of sp@m comments are :( Removing these takes away the joy that a genuine comment might be left one day.
