2007 MGA Green Thumb Award Winner

The already gorgeously mottled foliage of greigii tulips is taken to a new level with this new tulip, when its gold edges intersect with both the green and red parts of the leaves, the effect is that of stained glass. These great leaves are topped by the classic boxy red flowers of greigii division tulips.
