This graceful and elegant tulip, introduced in 1943, is considered an excellent variety for bedding and cut flowers. Tulips were extremely popular flowers during the age of Jefferson, as much a symbol of prestige as gardening skill. Jefferson mentions tulips more than any other flower in his Garden Book.
