Tulips Great and Small
(1)The white flowers are my botanical/species tulips "Turkestanica" in full bloom. I am pleased with the multiple flowers on each stem. The great feature about these is that they multiply.
(2) Tulip "Toronto": These tulips came as a bonus with an order of other bulbs. I don't know if I would have picked the bright color if I had been tulip-shopping, but these coral orange-pink blooms form the most flamboyant spot in the yard. They are my only Gregii tulips, short and stout with pointed petal tips. Few nearby flowers are in bloom anyways, so I don't need to worry about flower-clash.
