I uploaded a picture of this nice tulip. Dark purple with white edging, plus a nice bold yellow eye inside when they open. This is their first year, so I can't say how long lasting they are.

I had to order these "twice" as the first time I received them, they were mis-tagged. If you've ordered them and got some nondescript purple tulip, contact your seller and get them to reship!
