Though I grew over twenty new-to-me varieties of tulip this spring, some were definitely more unique than others. ‘Cummins’ tulip was one such variety. Let’s take a closer look at these beautiful fringed flowers.
‘Cummins’ tulips are a lovely shade of purple and white. Upon first glance, the purple outer petals and white fringe is most noticeable. After getting just a bit closer, it becomes easier to notice the very dark purple inner portion of the flower and black stamens.
Like many of the other tulips with black stamens, ‘Cummins’ tulips seem to drop black pollen all over the place if left in the garden too long before picking for cut flower arrangements. Still, these flowers add an amazing amount of texture to vases.
I would definitely like to grow ‘Cummins’ tulip again in the future. What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘Cummins’ tulip before? If so, I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comment section below. Thank you so much for visiting the blog!
