A Tulip with Flair!

Flair tulip is an early bloomer. The bright yellow and red colors blend together as the blooms mature. Colors are somewhat variable. This tulip has multiplied for me over the years. Highly recommend it!

Excellent banner Laurie!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Your tulips were a cheery sight to wake up to this morning. Alas, they won't be blooming outside here until late April or early May, and the annual indoor displays at local conservatories, scheduled for late March, will probably be cancelled again this year because of the pandemic. Thanks for this slice of 'tulip love'. Thank You! Thumbs up

You folks are so sweet! Thanks for sharing your comments---it is good to know that the pictures bring a little smile to your day. Smiling

One tulip I grow (Scarlet Baby) in an occasional year will bloom at the end of March, but the big tulip show arrives in April and continues into May. Helps make spring my favorite season. Smiling

Cal: if you were to try a tulip, what I have read is best for southern climates is Tulip clusiana, but NOT one of the cultivars! The straight species apparently is best (red and white with a purple heart). I've read that it grows in Alabama at least. Might be worth a try in your zone.

I love the contrast of the bright blooms and the bare stone nearby.
Keep calm... and plant something.
