Gardeners' Notes:

Buyers should be aware that the photos of China Town tulip on Dave's Garden are more representative of the flower color than the one in Breck's catalog, which shows a deeper color. Other than that, it is a nice flower. I really like the varigated foliage and green and white flower buds.
