This one is the new Holy Grail tulip. Super sought after but hard to source. Silvery lavender pale lilac furled blooms open to reveal a hint of dusty rose. You need to experience this one to appreciate the uniqueness. Amazing with White Lizard.
Tulips grow best in zones 4-7 where colder winters are more common. When planting outdoors most classes of tulips do not return every year, with the exception of the Darwin Hybrids and species. We grow them in pots and crates and compost the bulbs after they bloom.
