Flowers From Our Yard: Towering Prism Tulip



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Towering Prism was a new tulip for us last year. It blooms somewhat later than our other tulips and is also taller than most of our tulips. I guess it just wants to make sure it gets plenty of attention, but as pretty as it is, that shouldn't be a problem.

A Prism, how beautiful. And the shape seems somehow more classic to me, kind of reminiscent of the ones in Holland
