Few Tulips perennialize for me - Too much water because I grow them in the same bed as summer bulbs and annuals/perennials and probably too much heat too early on but...this Tulip is an exception. Thank God because every year this comes back just a big larger and every year I just stand over it and stare inside at the interesting patterns and nice contrasts in color between the yellow and black.
