Bastogne is a stunning red Triumph Tulip. Too bad Triumph tulips are a one-shot deal for me. Plant in the fall, bloom in the spring, and then disappear, never to be seen again, so I have to plant them again. I had Bastogne this spring and did not buy it again for fall, so my chances of it coming back are pretty much zero.

'Bastogne' is a beautiful tulip. When you want a splash of color to be seen from a distance, this is your red tulip of choice. It'll be sure to leave a lasting impression on those who see it in bloom. It's a great choice in the spring garden when bright color is needed after the winter has ended.
