Like so many other times, I was first drawn to order ‘Apricot Foxx’ tulip when the online photos promised beautiful soft pastel colored flowers. This spring, I waited eagerly for them to open. Much to my surprise, I was greeted with this really odd pink-orange color – the likes of which I have never seen in tulips. Let’s take a closer look –
Though they weren’t at all what I had expected, I will say that the ‘Apricot Foxx’ tulips were actually quite charming. I found it really interesting that the stamen color of each flower wasn’t consistent. While many have yellow stamens, some of the flowers have dark ones. From a flower arrangement standpoint, this was actually something that I found to be a little bit bothersome, but not a dealbreaker.
The photo of ‘Apricot Foxx’ tulips standing in the sunshine really does the best at showing the flower’s true color. The inner petals are a pretty (yet, saturated) peach-salmon color. Most of the outer petals have a brighter pink stripe, as well.
Though ‘Apricot Foxx’ tulip wasn’t the perfect single pastel tulip that I had been hoping for, I would definitely consider growing it again. What do you think?
