Tulip Antoinette

 At last year's Malvern Autumn Show (2022), I bought 10 Antoinette™ tulip bulbs for Mary who was, unfortunately, stuck at home with a bad cold/laryngitis/pneumonia/Covid-19*. They were advertised as a late-flowering multi-headed chameleon tulip changing colour from green-yellow to salmon pink.

The following photographs (Photos 1-7) are enlargements from my daily garden photoshoots (View from the Rear Window series).

On average, each tulip produced just over five flowers per bulb.

Here are a few more close-up photos showing the splendour of these tulips:

Well worth growing for some late tulip action and, provided they return in future years, excellent value for money (under a fiver!).
