Gardeners' Notes:

Positive ineedacupoftea On Apr 11, 2006, ineedacupoftea from Denver, CO wrote:

My favorite Tulip at this time. It is explosive in color. It is like so many of the flashy hybrids that need fertilizing and all to carry on year to year very well (unlike many of the unfussy species). Decent but not large flower size, medium-short stem length, good flower duration and open possibilities for companions in a 99mph garden.

If you love multicolored tulips, this tulip will make you jump.. it has a fantastic large flower head and georgeous coloring of red and yellow. A real stand-out.

Striking combination of red and yellow petal coloration. The red is fringed and is near the petal edges. Blooms are especially large. Reaches a height of 22". Not very good for forcing indoors.
