Esperanto Tulip

A Bloom Unlike Any Other
This elegant gem is useful for drawing attention wherever your garden needs it. Its buds bear a unique green-and-white pattern before blooming into gorgeous, flamed blooms. Its green leaves are also quite decorative, featuring a contrasting white edge. This variety is a good option for high impact without taking up too much room, like in city and courtyard gardens, or patio pots. It's also long-lasting, the flowers stay beautiful for up to 3 weeks. They make classy cut flowers. Easy-growing and frost tolerant in borders, where it will attract butterflies. Esperanto has won the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society.
