This one is unique. Shirley is one of the most delicately colored tulips of them all. It's icy white, with sort of a mist of lavender sprinkled over the petals, and then finished with a fine matching edge. Imagine this one planted near a strong purple or pink, and imagine the arrangements it can create! Be sure to invite 'Shirley' into your garden for next spring.

'Shirley' takes the prize. The Netherlands Flower Bulb Centre keeps careful records, and they tell us that of the thousands of Triumph hybrids grown today, Shirley is No. 1. She's right up there with Red Emperor, Angelique, Queen of Night, and the Darwin Hybrids, all world favorites.
