Tulip Time

Postby Sharon Bryson » May 23, 2009 8:16 am

This is the time to appreciate the tulips.
We have a few new ones and some old faithfuls. These unnamed ones pop up here & there in the gulley bed.
As usual there are some groups that are very spotty, guess they have decided against the concept of perennialization.
Spring Green is likely one of the best....
These white are likely Duke of Wellington, but I didn't check the tag!
Night Rider is new this year, and seems to resent having its oicture taken!
In the same group here by the driveway is a lovely pink one called Aafke.

Voodie was too shy to look the camera here in this bed with "Shirley".
I wish "Ouilliles" would persist a bit better.......2 years seems to be the maximum, after that they are very sporadic. I must hunt up some more to plant this fall.

This is Atlantis, hard to get a decent pic , but they look quite nice with the peony stalks.

These little Rajke are just about finished.


We can't leave out "Akebono"...

Very interesting, and I share a liking for the same varieties!

I do not have your most delightful "Akebono" and must watch out for some, altho I SWORE I would buy no more tulips...every time I clean my ears I am surprised one doesn't fall out.

I also don't have a Voodie!

I enjoyed your post, very much.

will post some of mine, separately...brace yourself!

I see have some shopping to do this fall.

Gorgeous tulips, Sharon. I need to put new ones in this fall too.
