'Yellow Pomponette' is one of Wendy's Faves this season...this is what she has to say:
This is happiness in tulip form! It’s packed full of petals, looking like a wondrous yellow peony that’s delicately rimmed in scarlet. The Darwin Hybrid parentage gives this award winner surprising strength, height and size of blooms. And it’s fragrant as well!
Fancy schmancy! Every gorgeous, fully double, yellow petal is ever so delicately edged
with a ribbon of red.
These fully double tulips have large, ruffled petals that resemble peonies, in fact, they are sometimes referred to as Peony Tulips. Some are fragrant and all have flower heads that can reach up to 4 inches, 10 cm across which not only adds to their allure in the garden but as cut flowers as well. Just imagine your own home-made bouquet overflowering with a few of these spectacular blooms! They are considered late spring bloomers so if you're looking to extend your spring flowering season they're the perfect choice.
