Very Beautiful!
I ordered these from "Brent & Becky's Bulbs" because the photo really caught my eye. I planted 10 in Autumn 2009. I was not disapointed.

They are blooming right now and look just like the picture on the website, rich butter-yellow petals and a vibrant orange rim around the cup. They are much larger than I expected & they don't droop.

Also, I was amazed to see that my 10 "N. Delibes" bulbs have turned into 19 blooms on 19 separate plants their very first year!

I will definitely be ordering more "N. Delibes" this year.
