Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen on behalf of Expert Village. We are going to continue our talk about tulips. There's many different varieties and many different colors. The Parrot Tulips are probably my favorite. They come in blue; black, this is actually a dark burgundy and if you notice most black flowers are a dark purple. So the fact when you have a dark burgundy it just really adds pizzazz to your garden. And then when there is Texas Flame which is yellow with a red stripe, but they also come with red and then these parrot green and yellow stripes as well, which I just think are just gorgeous. They just look so much like a parrot feather and it's amazing that something like a tulip can come in so many different colors. I love this Angelic. It's a double tulip. It's got; it almost looks like a peony. It's got two sets of flowers on it, it's just delightful. Princess Irene has orange with a little bit of a burgundy flame at the bottom. It just really, really stands out in your yard. And then for the moon garden, we have got Swan Wings. It's got just a little bit of a fringe. That's why as white flowers goes it's a great long lasting tulip and it doesn’t turn brown as quickly as other white flowers because its got that fringe so it looks good for two, three months sometimes. That's a little bit about tulip bulbs. They are easy to grow, they come in many colors and you can enjoy them for years to come. Next we are going to talk about daffodil bulbs.
