Tulip Rococo

'Rococo' - a period in history known for it’s asymmetric designs and sumptuous curves.
What better name for this wonderful extremely asymmetric, fascinating and dynamic parrot tulip. This was my first love in the genre of parrot tulips and although over the years tastes change, my enthusiasm for this bold beauty has not waned and its dominant presence in the cutting garden still makes me smile. I love its dynamic Jekyll and Hyde quality, its change from tight green gnarled bud to its loud open announcement of bright red. Here are a few images to share from this year's harvest.

From green to red, just wonderful.
