Tulip from trade.

Last fall I received a few bulbs and some Day Lilies from another gardener. When I planted them I had no idea what they were. So far I think an Allium has come up and now I have these Tulips(?) blooming. The blooms are huge and on some that have opened the petals have unfurled into something that reminds me of a bat in flight. The variegation is interesting and I wonder if it was crossed to look like this on purpose. Anyway what ever it is it has been a pleasure to watch and check up on daily.


This Tulip has been IDed as a Flaming Parrot Tulip. Thanks for the help.

    That's a tulip alright, but what a weird form!


  2. Hello, anonymous. I just found out it's a Flaming Parrot Tulip. I'll refrain from making jokes.

  4. Hello Mr. Brown Thumb;
    Your tulips look better than mine. I will have to find the name of the yellow one and I will let you know. I am glad you are enjoying them. This is the first time I have ever posted on a blog, not sure I am up to the technical challenge of my own blog. Time will tell.

  5. Hi there 2plantguys.


    Thanks so much for these bulbs they've done great and I've enjoyed them. I'm sure you'll get the hang of the blog thing too. It's easy-just like writing and e-mail everything is done for you. You just pic a name, a template and start posting. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
