Tulipa 'Apeldoorn'

10th April 2009

My favourite of the Tulips, I love the bright red opulence. The flowers open suddenly from fresh green buds like a sudden flash of colour in the garden. In the middle of the April garden, when there is colour everywhere, this effortlessly steals the show.
I try to plant a few new bulbs every year, but it is getting harder and harder to obtain the real thing , and there is no substitute to compare with it.
