(Peony Tulips) She reminds him of every good day he's ever had. Every summer spent in fields of grass. Every sunrise. Every sunset. She tastes like dew and smells light light. And when she speaks, it's like someone slowly plucking the strings of a guitar, a sadly beautiful song starting to play all it's own. And he loves her.
Cut for new blooms. If you want to stimulate blooms, cut the rose branch at a five-leaflet cluster. Prune about a ¼ inch above where the leaf stem meets the branch--the new bud is tucked in there. The resulting branch will be shorter and bloom sooner.
'Ice Cream Tulip' - Truly one of the most distinctive tulips. White petals, closely mounded, form a central cone resembling vanilla ice cream. Strawberry-pink petals, tinged with green. Lush 4" blooms.
