Cam, the cardinal in the photograph directly above, can be seen gazing upon a tulip known as Firesprays, which grow in my urban (NYC) garden. In her book, "Words In Our Beak Volume One" Cam discusses this tulip type. She also includes information regarding the other tulip varieties that I've grown here.
These include the following:
|Monsella Type A|
|Monsella Type B|
This season I have a few new tulip types growing here. These include a variety that is called Stunning Apricot. I get the "stunning" aspect of the name, but I must confess its color looks more pink than apricot to me.
