Oh The Weather Outside is Frightful!

Another great tulip is called Monte Carlo.  It is a double, blooming in early May (yellow).  The squirrels and rabbits do not seem to bother this variety.  They are very showy, low enough to put around trees.  I order mine from Scheepers or VanEnglen.

I love my orange emporer tulips. They are wonderful full bloomers and look great in the spring. My home faces west and the orange emporer tulips adorn my front walk way. The monte carlos are beautiful as well. The two colors together make a brilliant landscape for the spring.

I buy news ones each year because I am not sure they will return. I have seen cars slow down to look at the Orange Emperor.
