I found this gorgeous tulip on a website and had to order it. It has different colors and stripes and every one is unique. A bright and colorful beauty. It's all one variety, but it will look like I'm growing different tulips.

It's an older one, so that may be why I only saw it on one website. I didn't even know about this variety until last fall. I only ordered 25, and I'm sure that after I see them in bloom, I'll wish that I'd ordered more.

Looking forward to seeing all those flowers this spring.
