Tulip ‘Miami Sunset’

As promised a photo profile of all the stages of Tulip ‘Miami Sunset’.  Sunsets are always beautiful and this one is no exception.

When I first saw the flower I was a little disappointed, but as the colours developed I fell in love!

The crystalline edges of the petals and the fast developing colour (just like a real sunset) quickly became my favourite tulip.

I read earlier this week that the rate of growth of a tulip after it has been cut is the length of the flower every twenty four hours.

Is there a flower you love that changes so much during it’s life.

I wonder which of my tulips will flower next?  Will there be a new one before next Monday?

I hope you’re enjoying some wonderful sunsets, they always seem more colourful in the winter than at any other time of year.

  1. It really is gorgeous, especially when the light or sun shines on it. Actually, our sunrises have been more colourful than our sunsets this winter. A flower I love watching in spring is Pulsatilla, as the seed heads are as lovely as the flowers themselves. I must plant some in my new garden this spring!

  2. Christina has also enchanted me with the Tulip “Miami Sunset”. I love how it is changing since it flowers until the last photo: it is almost a metamorphosis full of beauty and a treasure. It is a divine, wonderful tulip. No wonder you’re so excited about him. If you have good weather, make the most of the weekend in the garden. Take care. Greetings from Margarita. 🙂
