Before starting my own garden, I had never been too impressed by tulips. I had never seen them growing in real life, and the bunched bouquets from the supermarket certainly left a lot to be desired. Fortunately, I’ve definitely had a change of heart.
Since all of my tulips will eventually be used in flower arrangements, I usually choose to focus on the “fancy” varieties. To me, this means the likes of doubles and parrots. Still, I do like to choose a small handful of single varieties to try each season.
‘World Peace’ tulip is one such variety. While I was initially drawn to its intense color, I was so pleased to see that it produces stems that are long and strong.
Though I was really hoping that most of the “flaming” would be more of a pinkish color, the blooms in my yard lean much more towards red. Despite this, there’s no denying that this cultivar is absolutely stunning.
I’m not absolutely certain I would grow ‘World Peace’ tulip again, simply because I think the color would be a little difficult to use in spring arrangements – most people seem to demand pastels this time of year. However, I have really enjoyed have it in the garden! What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘World Peace’ tulip before? I’d love to hear all about your experiences down in the comments below.
