All 'Duc van Tol' tulips are historical tulips. It is a very special group.
Duc van Tol Red and Yellow is dated from 1595. It is the oldest cultivar from this group. Single Early Tulips 'Duc van Tol' were highly appreciated until 1940. After 1940 the cultivation of 'Duc van Tol' stopped and the bulbs were not offered anymore. Hortus Bulborum in Limmen has saved the tulips of the group of Duc van Tol' before they completely disappeared. Bulbs are only rarely offered nowadays. 'Duc van Tol' tulips are probably named after Adriaen Duyck, Duke of Oudkarspel, who got married with Aleid van Tol around 1550.
