Tulip ‘Ballerina’

Our Tulip season began early this year, although it included some false starts and sneak attack hard frosts. And it seems to be ending early as well.


One of the last of the Tulips to go is ‘Ballerina’. I love the color and the shape. When the flowers mature they seem to be a brighter, more uniform orange. Few Tulips can glow in the afternoon sun with the same intensity.

  1. I remember those beautiful orange tulips from your post last year. We have just been buying bulbs today, but I’m going to go back and see if I can find Ballerina. (and hope the Cockatoos are not partial to orange, they snipped off the red tulips last year.)
