I have had this tulip in my garden for over 5 years. I moved them to a different bed about 3 years ago and they never skipped a beat. They are the most beautiful and reliable tulip I have grown. They bloom late in season when other tulips have gone away and defy our West Texas winds. Mine bloom an average of 2 to 3 weeks. I would highly reccommend this tulip.

Blushing Lady is a very tall, elegant tulip. It is one of the latest and tallest tulips in my garden. They have a slim silhouette and pointed petals like the lily-flowered tulips. The flower is creamy yellow with a clear, medium pink brushed up the sides. Absolutely beautiful.
