An unexpected surprise in this year’s tulip display, was this top delight. We hadn’t chosen it, in fact we don’t even recall ‘fringed tulips’ being any of the choices last autumn. It must have fallen into the wrong box, or should I say right box for us.

Square Tulip

Given how it arrived in our garden I am uncertain of its name. It could be ‘Fancy Frills’ or possibly ‘Bell Song’, but whatever its name it is a top beauty this spring on our patio.

    1. it was such fun watching it develop from bud to bloom, initially I thought it might be frost damaged as I had never seen a fringe unfurl before. Such a delight when it finally opened, and it is long lasting too as still looking glorious after a week
