Garden planning is a long process. Before making orders, I like to thoroughly research each variety on Google. Usually, an image search can help me to determine what the plant might look like in my own yard. Upon searching for ‘Piste’ double tulips, I quickly found that the results were very limited. In fact, I wasn’t quite sure how the flower would look!
‘Piste’ tulips grew on stems that were both tall and strong – a winning combination in the cut flower garden. Though I had only planted about ten bulbs, the flowers were very large and filled with petals. These fluffy blooms also looked especially attractive in cut flower arrangements.
I would describe ‘Piste’ tulips as having a very welcoming cream color, which becomes more apparent as it continues to age. Though it appears to be solid from a distance, the bloom actually develops very subtle pink-red streaking on each petal.
‘Piste’ tulip bulbs were very difficult to find, but I would definitely grow them again – should I find them, that is. What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘Piste’ tulips before? I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comment section below. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!
