Described on the website as a lily flowered tulip, I didn’t quite know what to expect when the first ‘Doll’s Minuet’ tulips began to open. I knew that they wouldn’t look anything like the more traditional flowers that I always grow. However, I did not anticipate liking them so much!
As you can see from the photos, ‘Doll’s Minuet’ tulips are a very pretty shade of hot pink or magenta. Though it is sometimes difficult to photograph certain colors, I definitely that these are very true to life. As anticipated, the petals quickly unfurled to show their unique form.
As it would turn out, ‘Doll’s Minuet’ tulips had an exceptionally good vase life and looked absolutely beautiful when arranged with some other tulips and a bit of early seasons greenery. Though not typically a flower that I would select, I would definitely consider growing these beauties again in the cut flower garden.
