We ordered these deep purple french tulips for a lesson at FlowerSchool New York. Normally french tulips are extra long and have characteristically large heads. These were none of the above. As they matured though, I learned that their beauty lies in the multi-petal tepal count. A week and a half later they are still strong and unfurling. A little different than what we had in mind, but beautiful nonetheless. Floral Arrangement and Photography Beth Horta for Sweet Sabelle.
