In my quest to diversify the varieties of tulips that I grow in my garden this year, I added several cultivars that I thought had at least one interesting trait about them. The ‘China Town’ Viridiflora tulip was no exception to this – just look at those amazing variegated leaves!
Though the leaves of the ‘China Town’ tulip were absolutely gorgeous, I was somewhat disappointed by the overall inconsistency of the bloom. Most of the pictures online show a very soft pastel pink color that is mixed with green streaks. Here in my own yard, the streaks were very prominent, but so too, was the pink.
Most of the ‘China Town’ tulip blooms were also very short. While I’m not certain that I would grow this particular variety of tulip again in the cut flower garden, it would make a very lovely addition for the flower border. What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘China Town’ tulip before? If so, I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comment section below. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!
