Tulip "Blue Base"

This is one of my favorite tulips, despite its unimaginative name. I got it from Brent and Becky's, and should have got more this year before it sold out. It is very graceful and the color is an indescribably beautiful and bright shade of red that goes well with the large blue center. It is in the Triumph group of tulip hybrids. I do hope it returns again this spring, even if it doesn't I will grow it again because of its exceptional beauty.
