Tulip ‘Brown Sugar’

It would push me over the edge to have to write catalogue descriptions for tulips.
A groundwork of deep apricot etched in grenadine feathering reaching just shy of the margins, emanating from a central upward brush stroke of cerise pink.
Try doing that eight hours a day.

  1. How plant descriptions are written is fascinating. Some like the above make you wonder what they are really talking about, while many in the opposite end leave you cold and asking why any gardener would want the plant.

  2. Love that tulip, which despite its name, is a beauty. Sometimes the name can put one off, almost too corny to keep saying it. Doesn’t it remind you of ‘Princess Irene’?
    Didn’t grow any tulips this year…I’m already sorry!
    Thanks for a great post, including the photos of succulents & cactus.
