You can add texture to your garden in many ways. Here, we have a tulip with fringed petals, one of the many forms (or textures) available in hybrid tulips today.
Imagine having two tulip varieties blooming together in the same colour, but with different textures – simple but dramatic.
Or try contrast. I don’t know the name of my red tulip (it was labelled “red fringed tulip”), but it’s a mid-to-late bloomer alongside the elegant, lily-flowered Tulipa ‘White Triumphator’. Red and white. How Canadian.
