In Bloom: ‘Foxtrot’ Double Tulip

‘Foxtrot’ tulips are an ever popular variety of double bloom. Even before I started gardening, I remember seeing this variety being offered each fall at my local home improvement store. I nearly always plant ‘Foxtrot’ because it blooms so early, which is especially helpful for late March/early April flower arrangements and donations.

As you can see from the photo above, ‘Foxtrot’ tulips are often much shorter than a lot of my other varieties. This can definitely vary from one season to another. Even when the flowers are quite short, they are still very useful for small vases and jars.

In general, I find that the flowers start out as a very pale pink and progressively become more saturated after they have opened. Have you ever grown ‘Foxtrot’ tulip before? What did you think? I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comment section below. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!
