This Victorian jewel went “commercially extinct” years ago, but Alan Shipp of the UK National Collection has been nurturing it for us, and for the first time since 2010 we once again have a handful of bulbs to offer. Its name translates as “Orange Above All,” a nod to Holland’s royal House of Orange and part of a traditional Dutch cheer that ends with “long live the Queen!” Rosier than ‘Gipsy Queen’
, it’s especially beautiful combined with purple hyacinths. 10-12”, zones 5a-8a(10bWC), from England. Last offered in 2013. We’ll offer it again as soon as Alan Shipp builds up stock. For an alert, subscribe to our email newsletter.
