Tulip ‘Double Beauty of Apeldoorn’

This is some of what I’ll be spending my tulip money on next year.


This is the second year in a row I’ve purchased and prechilled this flamboyant double tulip. What a fine Easter present (to me).
Maybe fewer bulbs to a pot for next year. These flowers are huge.



It’s probably not necessary to write that there are no big spring bulb displays in Los Angeles.
In fact, many Southern Californians only know spring as the time of year to retrieve their flip-flops from under the bed.
I like the way these tulips announce spring, loud and gaudy.

    I love your “gaudy” tulips. To answer your question about Indigofera: It is indeed different than Lespedeza which I also have. The flowers and foliage are very similar but Indigofera is an upright shrub and blooms all summer whereas Lespe blooms only for a short time in fall. Indi is easier to place in the garden too because it doesn’t take up as much space. Thanks for visiting. Always a pleasure.
