GBBD in Buffalo: tulips


If you watch this video you’ll see the tulips I’ve got blooming as of today, as follows:

Species: marjoletti (matures from yellow to cream with reddish streaks),clusiana (striped), vvedenskyi (bright orange)

Triumph: Negrita, Amazone

Single Late: Blushing Lady, Mrs.Scheepers

Double: Orange Princess, Yellow Mountain, Black Hero

Lily-flowered: West Point

Parrot: White Parrot (possibly).

I love tulips, so this time of year in the garden is rivaled only by lilium time in July.

  1. Thanks Michele, but it is just an iphoto slide show turned into a video. iphoto kind of does everything for you. The main thing is getting royalty-free music so you don’t get spanked (rightly) by YouTube.
