Double Tulip Colors

Super pale Foxy-Foxtrot

Double tulips don’t behave like the single Easter-egg tulips we all know best. Unlike singles, they expand, change, and preen like birds as they unfold over several days, like a new butterfly expanding and drying its fresh wings. They also change color depending on the weather.

The warm late-winter weather surprised ‘Foxy Foxtrot’ – normally citrus orange-yellows with a red blush – into opening lemon-yellow, then morphing to sherbet colors over a couple of weeks.

‘Copper Image,’ normally the warm copper peach colors in last year’s top picture, is opening rose-red this year. I’m curious to see what it looks like in a week or two!
