Tulip ‘Red Riding Hood’

14 04 2011

Native to Pakistan, the ‘Red Riding Hood’ Tulip (Tulipa greigii) was introduced in 1953 by a Dutch company. What makes this cultivar so unusual are the red and green variegated leaves. The inside of the flower is scarlet with a black throat. Gina brought these bulbs back from Amsterdam and they are now in full bloom in Karen’s front yard garden.

Reminds me of the red dress I wore to the garden party a few years back! I love that color red.
