Is this a new flower?  I had never seen it until I watched a TV program today and someone noticed this flower in a bouquet.  It was quite lovely.  I would love to be able to plant some.  I dream of the day I will have a green thumb.  In the past I have tried so hard to grow gardens (vegetables, flowers, herbs)  and has always failed!  Epical Failure!  My husband told me to just quit trying.  You can't be good at everything!  Really?  I thought you just had to follow directions and have the right weather conditions but I guess that is not so.  Neighbors gardens are huge and they share their produce.  Me?  I waste money, time and yet I feel so relaxed and hopeful when I start.  Then frustrated when nothing grows,  But hey,  I am killer at growing weeds!  Not weed.  But weeds!  Has anyone had success with the fringed tulips?

In LaConner in Washington they have tulip days. Beautiful flower fields :) here is a photo of a parrot tulip. A tip don't put daffy and tulips together in a bouquet they will die. If you take a pin and put it through the the top of the neck of the tulip they won't fall over they will stand up straight. Ps don't leave the pin in ...lolPosted Image

Leslie, we can plant an absolute field of tulips together in the new system. I bought a Costco bag of 'em, and have lots of pretty purple one blooming. Actually I have always wanted to find a field, and load it with daffodils.

I have lots of daffs, but, scattered here and there. Some are over 30 years old. And we live on an old home place, and down in the woods, there are daffodils, from maybe a hundred years ago. I keep telling myself I'm going to go down and get one of them. There is also a rose bush down there, growing up a tree. Way up a tree.

I tried to plant flowers around our bird bath --but I can not keep our dogs out of it (not the bird bath but the area around it).  They would run and trample till there was nothing left.  Then they would bite the tops off the flowers!  I saw some elephant ears and wondered if that might work in that area.  Looks better than weeds and I tought since they are so bit it might detract the dogs.  I get so tired of people dropping off their dogs in our rural area.  It hurts to see them hungry but I just can not take on many more strays!  Five strays and our three is plenty!  Besides, they really think they are allowing us to live with them!  

 

That tickles me pink to think of planting flowers with you!

post-571-0-34802700-1394486014.jpgI've had these. They are called Parrot tulips over here.

 

Mine lasted 2 years in the garden and so many shops have closed down in my town that I rarely see such bulbs for sale here now.

 

They come in beautiful combinations of stripey colours and frilly or fringed edges. Must see if I can get some again on the Internet.
