If red tulips bore you, try this radiant beauty from the Hortus. What sets it apart is its antique form. In the morning its pointed, tightly-clasped petals give it a flame-like look (in Dutch its name means “fire-flame”) and then later as the day warms up they curl gracefully open. Although popular in formal Victorian pattern-bedding, to our eye it has the purity and grace of a wildflower. Single Early, 10-12”, zones 4a-7b(8bWC), from the Hortus Bulborum
