Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen from and in this series we're learning all about how to identify spring blooming flower bulbs. We buy them in the fall we plant them and they bloom in the spring, and we have no idea what the plant is, we don't know their name, don't know anything about them. But I think that's one of the best parts about gardening is the joy you get when you see everything in bloom. One of my favorite tulips of all is a nagrita tulip. It's a beautiful, beautiful purple tulip that is just one of the highlights of my yard. See I love nagrita because it's that bright purple and not too pink, I don't like pastels, I like bright vivid colors, and it's so bright and vivid. And you can barely tell on the side that they kind of have a green stripe, or a little bit of a stripe that comes up, that even makes them more vivid when they're in bloom. And they bloom for so long, these have been blooming for more than a month already and a little bit before this I had a red tulip that's now done blooming, and they're blooming at the same time and having the red and purple together I loved it. Cause it reminded me of college days for Linfield College, go wildcats. When you are planting your yard, take that into account. Plant to represent your past, plant your school colors together, plant your favorite colors together, and plant everything you saw on your grandmother's yard. Because that way when they do bloom you'll have even more memories to bring up and they'll be even more special. Next we will go to one of my other favorite tulips that a lot of people know about and that's Angelique.
