This season, it has felt particularly difficult to find motivation to create flower arrangements. While I have enjoyed picking and giving the flowers away, I just haven’t been in the right frame of mind to try arranging them myself. When the ‘Victoria’s Secret’ tulips finally started to open in the garden, I knew that this would be the perfect opportunity to try to craft something unique.
As you can see from the photo above, ‘Victoria’s Secret’ tulips are a variety of purple parrot tulip. Unlike some other parrots, these have less intense “feathering” on each petal and tend to have an almost ruffled appearance. The deep hues are quite lovely with a wide range of color combinations, as well.
In this vase, I decided to pair the tulips with ranunculus and some daffodils. I picked the peachy ranunculus from the ‘Amandine Pastel Lemon’ mix. I also added a few stems of ornamental cabbage that I seeded last fall. I think the cabbages does a nice job of adding just a little something extra to the display.
Have you ever grown ‘Victoria’s Secret’ tulips before? What did you think? I’d love to hear all about your experiences in the comment section below. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit the blog. I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Happy gardening!
