Gardeners' Notes:

2011 review: At first, the flowers are a pale, creamy yellow with a chartreuse streak in the center of each petal. Over the course of many days, they become pure white.

2013 review: I had read that these tulips would come back year after year and multiply, but mine petered out after a few years. This spring I only had one bloom. I have had much better results with another lily flowering tulip 'Maytime', which is a deep pink color. If you are looking for a creamy white flower that blooms at the same time, and is the same height as 'White Triumphator', try Narcissus 'Thalia'. I've been growing 'Thalia' for about ten years, and it continues to thrive in my garden.
