    I've never grown a double late (peony flowering) tulip and when I saw pics of Creme Upstar, I knew I had to grow it. It looks gorgeous! As the tulip bloom matures, the colors of it intensify and everything becomes more beautiful. What's not to love?!

    I planted 25 of the beauties last fall and I'm looking forward to seeing them in flower!
