This plant is absolutely beautiful up here in Northern Ohio! We paired it with Negreta Tulip (a dark burgandy) and it is stunning. I was really surprised by how gorgeous they are. My husband picked these out and I bought them at Bluestone Nurseries and they have done beautifully. I planted 8 and got 8 plants that has 3 tulips each bulb. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to add a wow to your spring garden. I get comments constantly on the two tulips together.

This will be my third year growing this Tulip. It has dark stems with white and purple blooms. Its pritty, but not especially showy, therefore im giving it only a neutral.
