We plant them in the fall, and then we don't know what they are when they come up. But I really know what Angelique is when it comes up, because it's one of the most beautiful tulips in my yard. Angelique is one of the easiest tulips to recognize. It has a double structure, in fact, it has lots of different layers inside. And it looks a lot like a peony flower when it does bloom. It's a real soft pink, with a little bit darker pink stripes. It has a really pretty, almost dusty look to it. Real dainty, real long lasting. They don't get too big. They're kind of daintier.

Beautiful in your yard, or real traditional type garden flower that many times your grandmother would remember from her youth. Next, we'll talk about a more unusual tulip in my yard. Greenland.
