In returning to my weakness for big, fluffy tulips – we arrive at the ‘Belicia’ double tulips. I’ve grown ‘Belicia’ tulips for a few years now, but for whatever reason, have never made a formal post about them here on the blog. Much like many of the other double tulips in my garden, I love the huge peony-like flowers.
Over time, each bloom can vary quite a bit in appearance. When ‘Belicia’ tulips first start to open, the color of the flower is actually much more yellow than white. Soon, the yellow tint fades to a crisp white and bright pink edging begins to develop.
As you can see from these blooms which have been picked a little bit past their prime, the center of the flower is still a very soft yellow. I personally don’t think that this takes away from their beauty, rather adds an extra bit of dimension.
It seems that most everyone who sees the ‘Belicia’ tulips growing in my garden really likes them. I hope to continue growing them. What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘Belicia’ 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!
