Plant details

Green flowers have always fascinated gardeners and flower arrangers. With the tendency for tulips to produce bizarre colour breaks, green varieties were inevitable, and there is now a comprehensive selection of strong-stemmed single varieties in various colours and elegant shapes, but all with green bands, edges, flares and other markings. They all flower in May. 'Spring Green' is a supreme arranger's variety with a fresh green ground colour, and a broad white edge at their tips, the petals shade to ivory and soft yellow. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
