This is a lovely and tall large-bloomed red tulip. I planted Red Impression in combination with some daffodils at the edge of my driveway. I like these big red tulips so much that I bought more Red Impression bulbs and I will be planting them this fall.

This is an exciting sport of the famous Pink Impression. Well known and a great choice to add as a Darwin Hybrid. Even though I started ordering tulips late last fall, I was able to find 49 to grow. I'm surprised I hadn't grown this beauty before, as it's been out since 1994. Another popular one to add to the spring garden. Can't wait to see the flowers.

Tulip 'Red Impression' is an absolutely gorgeous cultivar. Its large bulbs send up enormous, 20-22 inch stalks topped by huge brilliant red, silky blooms, so vibrant they look almost unreal in every photo I have of them. 'Red Impressions' is a Division 4 (Darwin Hybrid) tulip, known as the 'longest term perennial' tulip group. 'Red Impressions' blooms in midspring and does best in full sun.
