The name may be a little naff but it is apt as the flowers are one of the truest blues (in the tulip world anyway) and they probably will make you go ‘wow’! It’s a recent introduction and was spotted in the famed Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands where its unusually shaped flowers (it has a mass of purple petals that seem to erupt from a green-flushed base) caused a bit of a sensation. If you want something big and blousy to add lots of colour to your late spring and early summer display then look no further.
