Color for the Weekend

Tulips at Longwood Gardens: Tulipa 'Purple Dream' & Tulipa 'Queen of the Night'

Here is a peek at the wonderful tulip displays at Longwood Gardens this month!

The lily-flowered Tulipa 'Purple Dream' just glows in the May sunlight. And late blooming Tulipa 'Queen of the Night', a classic, tempers the dreamer a bit and adds some great contrast.

More from Longwood Gardens soon. Hope you are enjoying a restful weekend!

  2. Purple Dream was a chance choice for my garden last autumn. I was so pleased I had planted it. You'll find some images if you search my April posts. Christina

    1. Donna,
      Do they eat things in the front of your house? And I have wondered whether planting tulips with large numbers of Allium would help at all?? I just got home from some friends who say they spray their tulips as soon as they start to come up in spring with deer-deterrent... maybe worth a try for you?

      I know if we move somewhere with deer eating, I am going to have some heartbreak to deal with!
      Have a great weekend,
      ~Julie
