'Lady van Eijk' was introduced in 2009, so why doesn't it seem to be widely available?! I don't remember seeing it last year when I was looking at a lot of mail-order websites. I'll have to keep it in mind when ordering tulips. It will be added to my order right away whenever it's available.

Its dark rose-red flower is beautiful. Another great choice for a pinkish tulip to grow. I can't wait to find it and grow it!
