Just wanted to share some pictures of a new variety of tulip I tried this year, and quickly give some of my thoughts! Hope that you enjoy!
It almost seems to “glow” on bright, sunny days.
Here’s a closer look at the coloring!
One reason I like ‘Charming Beauty’ is because the colors work quite nicely with the apricot and salmon parrot tulips. I think this fact alone is enough to make me want to grow this one again next year.
It’s hard to describe the color of the markings within the flower, but I think the overall “look” is gorgeous.
In some of the flowers, it seems that more color appears as it ages.
This flower that’s about to start opening is striped with green.
Every ‘Charming Beauty’ bulb that I planted resulted in stems with multiple flower heads. While I wonder if weather was a factor, the consistency makes me think that this is just a trait present in this type of tulip? Have you have this experience before? Let me know in the comments!
Short stems were an issue this year. However, this variety had the shortest stems of all the varieties I planted.
