I have tulips planted all around the house and plant a few each years to create pockets of tulips in the spring. The tulips were not the greatest this year I think the weather played a part in the blooming. I was looking at a catalog and their are some new neat types. The Omnyacc tuips looks very interesting. It is a deep red flower with yellow pistils and a interesting shape. The Professor Rontgen is a yellow base with orange tones.
