Has anyone grown these?

They're on the Botanus website and they're quite unique.

I might just have to get some =:)

I've had some viridiflora tulips and yes, they are unique! Mine is/was Chinatown, i believe. I don't think it turned up this year.

I don't grow many tulips but I do have Chinatown and I love them especially because of their variegated foliage that is very attractive. I'm not sure of their longevity but I have had them for several years and would certainly consider planting them as an annual. I've seen some other viridiflora tulips that I would consider as well; I definately would recommend them.

I grew the deirdre tulips last year--they are quite lovely. They looked wonderful in my mixed woodland garden.

Well, I planted 10 Deirdre today. I put them 2" or so deeper than they say to. Botanus advised me to do that. I'll post next spring whether they came up or not.

My Deirdre tulips came up and they were spectacular !

The unique green, white, and yellow looked really nice with the Little Giant Cedars, and Blizzard Mock Orange, and Arctic Primula (?)

I sure hope they come up again next year. They were well worth the money even if they don't last more than one year.

You need to get a new computer so you can post pictures! Of course, that might cut into your garden budget, eh? But you can do monthly payments.... LOL

I have one viriflora that has turned up out of the mixed tulips i bought last year. Might be a Spring Green. I had them as well but don't see them anywhere this spring.
