Start the Tulip Season with a Burst of Color
The tulip Double Flag has become a favorite in the European cut flower markets. Its intense, violet-grape color is hard to resist and the perfect complement for yellow daffodils. As a cut flower, Double Flag will continue to grow in the vase. Over the course of a week, you can expect all tulips to add as much as extra three inches to their original length.
The flashy flowers of Monsella will certainly turn heads and may stop traffic. This double tulip’s petals are canary yellow with bright red flames. On sunny days the flowers become even showier as the petals open out wide to absorb the warmth.
