‘Young Love’ is a beautiful pairing of cream tulips that look like they belong together. They are Fosteriana, or Emperor tulips, bred for their superb coloring and sensational flowers on very robust stems and are some of the earliest to bloom in spring.
A combination of ‘Flaming Purrisima’ and ‘White Valley’ tulips, the flowers are extremely large, growing to 10 cm (4 in) across. They have superb weather resistance and will stand up to the rain and wind of spring well. With the creamy petals and touches of pink and green, these graceful tulips are simply gorgeous, either in the garden or cut in a vase.
Tulip ‘Flaming Purrisima’ has creamy white flowers with petals that gradually change to pink towards their edges with a delightful, feathered pattern and they are a deeper pink on the inside.
Tulip ‘White Valley’ Rich cream, semi-double flowers with a touch of buttery yellow at the base of the petals, with outer petals streaked in green.
Easy to grow in sun or partial shade, in borders or large pots with free-draining soil, plant them in autumn to flower in spring. They will give you a superb display which will get better every year as they begin to naturalise and spread. If you prefer, the tulips can be dug up and stored over winter.
