I planted several types of Double Late Tulips last fall. The Lavender Perfection were the first to bloom. Some that were planted in partial shade are just barely up. These are planted in full sun at the edge of my peony bed. The Angelique tulips are coming along right behind. Bulbs were from the Netherland Bulb Co. and purchased at a local nursery.

Absolutely breathtaking!!!
