Tulip-Menton (25 bulbs)
This Scheepers tetraploid is varying shades of enchanting rose-pink with apricot-pink petal edges, a yellow base and a rather orange interior with white stripes. Depending on the light, the day and its whim, Menton exhibits varying levels of iridescent pinkness flushed apricot-salmon. It's terrific paired with another late-bloomer, sibling Maureen. If you love Menton, you may also adore its semi-double offspring, Menton Exotic. This chalice-shaped beauty is perfect paired with sibling Single Late Tulip Maureen for they both bloom later than their Scheepers hybrid siblings Avignon, Camargue, Dordogne, La Courtine, Renown and Roi du Midi. Tulip Class: Single Late. Bulb size: 12 cm/up. Late May. HZ: 3-8. 26".
