above the rest,
with its long, slender stems and grape juice colored petals that reflex wide open on sunny days revealing its ivory heart. One of the largest and most reliable of the lily flowered tulips, it returns each year just as strong and with even more blooms.

A late spring bloomer here, it seems immune to our early heat and strong winds. It likes well drained soil and will grow to 20”-22” tall. It is stunning alone or with other colors.
