Hi wellsgreen! Welcome! to All Things Plants!

I don't know a thing about Tulips because they don't grow here in Florida U.S.A. but the Keizerkroon Tulips sure are pretty! I'd never even heard of them but googled to see photos: https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=Keizerskroon+tulips&spe...

Also when googling, I found this nursery in the U.K. but it's a wholesale nursery ... you may be able to contact them via their site and inquire as to where you can purchase the Keizerkroon: http://www.dutchbulbs.co.uk/plant-0002950-od-3/tulip-keizers...

Here is a place in Massachusetts, although it's not clear if they have them available for shipping right now:

I listed the link for the British nursery because I thought Wellsgreen was in the U.K. but there might be nurseries in the U.S. who ship overseas.

Ha! I have no idea where Southport is, and figured just because someone says they're British doesn't mean they live there. Two of my neighbors here in WA are British. Smiling
Those tulips are rather elusive no matter where you are, so it's all good.

@woofie Yes, I guess wellsgreen/Ian could live in the U.S. I know there is a Southport, N.Y. and possibly other states have a city by that name also. Green Grin!

Hi Plantladylin and Woofie,
Sorry! It is Southport, England, and I have just purchased the Keiserkroon bulbs from information provided by Plantladylin.
Thank you, both, for taking the time to help me, it was so good of you.
Have a happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year.
Ian. ( By the way, i'm Scottish!).

Ian,

I'm so glad you were able to find those beautiful tulip bulbs from information I supplied and I'm glad you found us here on All Things Plants. We have a few members from the U.K.: http://garden.org/users/memberlist/location.php?my_location=....

Happy New Year to you too!
