Tulip 'China Town' is such a stunner. I have been looking to use it somewhere in our gardens for a while, but I just stuck on the idea of pairing it with variegated loosestrife, Lysimachia punctata 'Alexander', last fall. It is perfect.
Tulip 'China Town' is a Green, or Viridiflora, Tulip. It has the frilly, wildness of a Parrot tulip and the green flames from its family, Viridiflora. (It is a relative of Tulip 'Virichic', another one in our garden this year.) And add to that white marginated leaves! Very few other tulips hold the distinction of white-edges foliage. Triumph Tulip 'New Design', Darwin Hybrid Tulip 'Design Impression', and Peony Flowering Tulip 'Carnival de Nice' are also in this exclusive club.
