Last Tulip of Spring

Tulipa sprengeri

This tulip,Tulipa sprengeri, is the exception to the rule. It will grow and flower well in semi-shade unlike any other and when it does it brings the tulip season to an end. This year it is early in my Amsterdam garden, but often it will not be in flower until June.

Its colour is strong and up close it screams refinement.
