FRINGED TULIPS [Bl: M/L, Zones: 3+ to 7] Use: border, cut Size: 12cm/up

Gardeners underuse these tulips, and it’s a shame because their petals, edged with crystal-shaped fringes, are like no other tulips. We call them “the tulips to touch” because no one can resist testing the flower’s fringe to see if it’s real, or glass.
