These are lovely tulips, but like the other double late tulips they do not naturalize or perennialize here (Boston Z6a).

Tulips require a dry summer rest, and we get too much summer rainfall here for most tulips to prosper. If you keep your summer irrigation to a minimum, they may come back a second season or even sometimes a third, though smaller each year.

All tulips are prime fodder for deer and other critters.

Very pretty. Sometimes flowers start out white and then change to pink. This is one of the things I like best about this tulip: A white and pink bloom may appear on the same plant. 2015 Update: This year I noticed some flowers actually were green at the same time as others were Pink. It was a very beautiful show. I will try to upload a picture.

I love these early spring tulips. They have come up pink each year. They are definitely light pink, but others complain about them coming up white after the first year, but mine haven't. They look great with something darker. I mix mine with Margarita tulips. Love the combo. They are very striking.

Beautiful their 1st year, but only one of 25 planted came back up this year here in Pittsburgh (zone 6a). I was very disappointed. Not sure what I did wrong. Let the plants fully die back before removing any of the leaves. Trying Lily-flowered tulips in another bed, hopefully I'll have better luck!

The first year I had these they were very lovely, but by the second year they produced very few petals (no longer peony-flowered) and were almost entirely white. They are probably fine for people who plant new bulbs every year, but I won't be buying them again.

These tulips have come up for 3 years in my garden and each year they loose more and more of their pink. They are very nice to see first thing in the spring after a zone 5 winter.
