I love the look of Lily flowering tulips. I only grow a few of these and I think that I’ll get some more for the garden this fall. They’re very delicate looking with their petals flared outwards.
I’m not sure why I’m so attracted to the more ornate tulips. I like regular tulips, but I’m drawn to double flowering tulips, Texas flames with their fiery colors, fringe tipped and lily flowering tulips. Perhaps since we go through a long dull winter here in Toronto I long for color and flowers with some flare when it’s time for them to finally grace my garden?
Do you have a favorite tulip or a favorite spring flower?
