    Persian Pearls are lovely, but I find they only flower for a very short time here; how long do they flower for you? We both picked tulips today!

      Ah, not sure Christina. These are in planters with some dinky roses and last year, their first year, it was mid April before they flowered but I can’t recall how long they lasted. The T clusiana certainly flower for a few weeks. I’ll let you know about these – I only noticed them this morning so it was another welcome surprise!

    That’s a perfect name for those beautiful flowers.

    Here’s my Wordless Wednesday: Crayons.

    Oh the potential!

  4. Simply beautiful! I’ve never grown them. I’ll have to check their hardiness zone. 🙂

      The little species tulips tend to be hardier than the taller tulips – they flower earlier and can be left in the ground in the UK. I like them a lot, these T humilis and T clusiana too

    These are stunning Cathy – another one for my list! I haven’t planted any species tulips yet – I expect that these will appeal to rabbits and chickens like the bigger tulips do so I will need a safe place for them.

    I love Persian Pearls and just wait until they open in the sun, their insides are so pretty.
