This is my first year growing this -or any other- tulip. I have always been reluctant to try them as I have always heard that they are not perennial in the warm south. I did some research last year and chose (from Brent & Becky's) several varieties that are reputed to do well- and return next year- in my zone (7b).

This is a gorgeous yellow tulip and is the last one that I have to bloom.


IF this returns next year, I will amend my rating to positive!
