After my first experience growing ‘Dream Touch’ tulip last year, I knew that I would want to plant it again. Though I’m not normally drawn to darker colors in the spring garden, ‘Dream Touch’ tulips offer something very special. The white edging, which surrounds the burgundy/purple blooms, make the flower very expensive-looking and especially popular with customers at the farmer’s market.
‘Dream Touch’ tulips are relatively large, about 3 inches across. Though I haven’t noticed that they are particularly fragrant, the color can appear quite different depending upon light conditions. In the sunny photo above, the shades of purple are more obvious. In the photo below, the shady flowers look much darker.
In my garden, ‘Dream Touch’ tulips consistently produce tall, strong stems. This is quite nice, as I nearly always pick my tulips for cut flower arrangements.
