This tulip is real green and tropical looking, like from another world. I can see how some would not like this flower, however its rare colour, exotic appearance and subtle elegance makes other tulips appear overdressed and gaudy. Green is a very lucky colour in Ireland, plant this and think of texture and foliage rather than for showy floral displays, definitely a talking point
