We’re always on the lookout for something different, so when we saw this quirky old tulip in a March 2008 Garden Design
article about the Hortus Bulborum
, we immediately called our friends at the Hortus to reserve some. With narrow, twisted petals of red, green, and maroon, it has an asymmetric, modern-art kind of vibe, but the Hortus dates it to 1700 and tulips much like it have intrigued gardeners since the 1600s. 16-18”, zones 4-7a. Last offered in 2008. We may offer it again periodically, or we could special order it for you.
