Black Hero Tulip

This Scented Tulip Looks Like a Peony!
This is a dramatic addition to a formal bouquet—these deep, deep purple petals bear an elegant contrast to white blooms especially. It'll also add fragrance to the bouquet—this is one of few tulips that actually have a perfume to them. In the garden, put this with pastel tulips to make the collection more dynamic and eye-catching. The doubling effect makes a really nice, rounded and full flower. In fact, with so many layers of petals curling in like that, it almost looks like a peony bloom! Perfect for the busy or novice gardener because it looks so impressive but requires very little work. If you want to add a little refinement around the garden or on the patio, a nice container full of these will do just the trick.
