After a quick search here on the blog, I found that I last grew ‘Charming Beauty’ tulips way back in 2016. Though it had been several years since I had last planted this bulb, I remembered enjoying its color. As you can see from the photos here, ‘Charming Beauty’ tulip is bright and beautiful.
Though these photos were taken on a particularly cloudy day, these tulips seem to glow in the sunshine. In my garden, I find that ‘Charming Beauty’ tulips open in a solid shade of yellow and develop those warm orange and pink tones over time. The additional splashes of color really seems to give the flower a depth that works very nicely in cut flower arrangements.
Though quite lovely, ‘Charming Beauty’ tulips do seem to struggle to produce long stems here in zone 6b/7. This was also an issue years ago. Perhaps, this tulip is best suited for arrangements in very small jars. What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘Charming Beauty’ tulip before? If so, I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comments below. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!
