Its bright colors of red, orange, rose, and yellow seem to say, "Look at me!" It has strong stems to hold up the large flowers. This tulip is tall at 30 inches. A beautiful tulip in bloom. To deter critters from eating up your tulip bulbs, use bulb cages or sprinkle crushed oyster shells in the planting hole.
