Tulipa 'Casa Grande'

I really like big, red tulips; and there is a new one blooming in the garden this year which does red and big as well as any tulip I have ever grown. That’s it in the image above: Tulipa ‘Casa Grande’. Several of the best qualities of Tulipa greigii are shown in this cultivar: the streaked and spotted foliage, the intense red color and the distinct flower shape. Let’s hope I find big, sound bulbs when I dig them later next month.
