9 May, 2012

 

They look great GM best I have seen in ages.

Cheers Lou,Pp,TT, Fran they are dark dark purple almost black, the centre has a bluey hue to it. Scotk. thanks for that tip I will take a look. Pim, think this cold weather has held them back and as it is cool they have lasted longer too!

Beautiful so very pretty and looking so very strong. I love them.

9 May, 2012

 

I grew these as part of my dark theme and was delighted with them, they are so dramatic....

9 May, 2012

 

Magnificet aren't they,GM? They never seem to fade.

9 May, 2012

 

Thank you very much Oji, Olive Dd and Meadow, I think we are all going to grow these next year! Hope the garden centres have enough for us Goy gang.

9 May, 2012

 

I love these too Grandmage. Im definately going to plant a few more to bulk out the ones I already have for next year. Have you seen my blog on Sarah Ravens garden? She grows alot of this colour tulip together with some bright orange lily shaped ones called Ballerina - stunning!

9 May, 2012

 

oooh no Poppy, will have a look and thank you, I actually got the idea of growing them in pots from Carol Klein, hers looked incredible, I did put what i thought was apricot in with these but they were a wishy washy white I was so dissapointed until I saw these and anyway the others had finished so i dead headed them and was left with these stunners!

9 May, 2012

 

Fantastic!!!

10 May, 2012

 

i have some of these and we love them such a stunning colour:)))))

10 May, 2012

 

Thanks Lil, fab aren't they? Mark, I am going to get more for next year they are wonderful, that bloomin wind bashed them last night though :~( I took this photo just in time!

10 May, 2012

 

So beautiful Grandmage. They are queen of the night,day and everything.

11 May, 2012

 

your tulips are lovely. As a teenager I grew a Queen of the night tulip in a glass growing container for a bulb.

11 May, 2012

 

Camillia, you are so right.
Lindak, did it get really tall? My tulips are very tall and the wind is blowing them around so much at the mo.

11 May, 2012

 

Lovely contrast, I have a similar one, but your variety seems to be bolder looking, it's absolutely gorgeous!

11 May, 2012

 

Thank you Waheeda, they are called 'Queen of the night' I got them at our local garden centre and yes they are gorgeous arent they?

11 May, 2012

 

yes it was tall.

11 May, 2012

 

These are quite special......I love the look of them....

17 May, 2012

 

Hb. they are so beautiful and because they are a rich colour they stand out like ram rods! I certainly am going to look for more for next year.

17 May, 2012

 

Me too............

17 May, 2012

 

I think so too, going to plant a load more if i can find them in the autumn.

26 Jun, 2012

 

Cheers Bilbo, I will look online at Parkers, I think that is a good price.

26 Jun, 2012

 

I have to agree . . a sultry statement.

28 Jun, 2012

 

Crackers aren't they Muddy :~)

28 Jun, 2012

 

Certainly are . . . just working out where they'd look best in MY garden! ;-))

28 Jun, 2012

 

I grew mine in a pot Muddy crammed in as many bulbs as I could Carol Klein style!

28 Jun, 2012

 

Mine were crammed in a pot too

28 Jun, 2012

 

Going to grow them like this always now Scot., I then know where they are!

28 Jun, 2012
