The first time I saw Angelique in bloom was decades ago at my sister's house. There was a large, stunning clump of these in front of her home in one of her flowerbeds. The color of the flowers was very beautiful and unforgettable.

It's very popular and rightly so. This past fall in early October, when I was getting a late start ordering my bulbs, all the sources for this wonderful tulip were sold out. This year I hope to order early enough to grow this gorgeous beauty.

For many years these tulips came up each spring in my garden. I finally lost them due to garden renovations. This fall I am planting new bulbs of Angelique that I hope to enjoy for years to come. Angelique is a double soft-pink tulip with the most lovely blooms.
