They call it the Ice Cream Tulip.
It came in an email from Breck's today.
Isn't it wonderful? At $19.99 for 3 bulbs, I don't think I will be buying any. It takes at least a dozen tulip bulbs to make any impact in my garden (2 dz would be better) and I'm not paying that much per bulb. If you want to part with $6.00+ per bulb, you can go buy them here.
Danielle, thank you for your comment regarding the name of my tulips in the last post. I went and looked up the one you suggested. They do look similar, but I am not sure they are the same.
Mine are multi flowering (4 or 5 tulips on each stem) and those did not look to be. Mine did come from Breck's. I need to write to Brecks about the mix up. Maybe they will know for sure what they are.
I still have not been out planting. I think it's going to warm up a bit by the weekend so I may get out to at least do some weeding and work on the garden path.
Last night I went to look for annuals.....pathetic selection! I will have to pick out something because tomorrow the Big Kahuna wants me to do 4 planters at work. I am not in the mood to plant my own, let alone his, but he insists
Last year I wasn't in the mood either, so the Big K & I went out and just bought 4 potted containers and popped them in the bigger planters. I thought they were boring the entire season (I am not a geranium lover, but it was all we could find). I hope to improve upon the planting this year.
Wish me luck!
