I was looking both at Brent and Beckies and also at Scheepers and I finially figgured out that Emperor and Fosteriana tulips are the same thing. I guess one is just a common name for the other. I don't have any Emperor tulips currenty but I figgure that the huge red tulips my dad used to grow when I was a kid were Red Emperor.

I came upon the idea that I should add the Emperor Tulips when I was searching on the net for more perennial tulips, these were ones that were mentioned. So I see Van Engelen, the wholesale part of Scheepers, has an Emperor Tulip collection of 300 bulbs which are 50 each of six varieties that are -

50 Tulip Flaming Purissima: White and pink.
50 Tulip Juan: Orange, yellow base.
50 Tulip Orange Emperor: Salmon-orange.
50 Tulip Red Emperor: Fiery-red.
50 Tulip Yellow Purissima: Canary-yellow.
50 Tulip White Emperor: Milky-white.

I am thinking that might be a good addition to the garden. I am also looking to get Emperor Tulips Apricot Emperor and Sweetheart which are not in the above collection but I really think both are true beauties.

So anyone growing Emperor Tulips? Any Advice?
