In life, there are just certain things that seem as if they were almost destined to belong together. Like peanut butter and jelly, for example. Sure, they’re great individually; but mix them together – and something magical happens. In my opinion, the same is also true when the ‘Mt. Tacoma’ and ‘Angelique’ tulips begin blooming together.
Mt. Tacoma tulips have been in my garden since the very first season. They don’t have the vibrant colors or unique patterns that some other double tulips sort, but they easily make up for it. Their large fluffy petals and crisp, clean flower heads always make me feel like I’m so fancy. No matter how many different varieties I grow, I can’t help but feel like this one is a timeless classic.
Sometimes I don’t even arrange them with other flowers, I just pick a big vase filled with only these. Last season, I even made a wedding bouquet of these for a friend. It was gorgeous. I’m sure there are pictures here on the blog, somewhere. Lol!
Oops! I almost forgot about the Angelique. This one is another favorite. Here in my yard, the blooms are quite pale when they first open – some of them even seem white. Overtime, they quickly begin to blush various shades of pink. Somehow, the pink flowers always end up being my favorites! Have you grown either of these double tulip varieties before? I’d love to hear all about it in the comment below! 🙂
