As you can see between the two pictures I have posted, the blooms start with a much more yellow coloration that fades out to pure white. The markings on this tulip are gorgeous but I'm afraid that it probably won't come back - I've since read that the "Triumph" series rarely survive long and are best treated as annuals.
