Its correct name and registration name by the Royal General Bulb Growers' Association (KAVB) is T. 'Apeldoorn's Elite', so with 'S after Apeldoorn.

Apeldoorn is a municipality and city in the province of Gelderland in the centre of the Netherlands.

Received AGM from the Royal Horticultural Society for its excellent performances in trials.

This is one of my favourite darwin hybrid tulips. I have had my clump for nearly 20 years...can't do any better than that! They are definitely a long-lived cultivar. The flowers are a blend of yellow, orange and red but the overall effect is mostly orange. A very highly recommended tulip!
