Daily Flower Candy: Tulips ‘Purissima’ and ‘Orange Emperor’

Every year I experiment with tulips in different colour combinations. Last year it was fiery orange ‘Princesse Irene’ and inky purple ‘Recreado’, this year it’s creamy white ‘Purissima’ and neon ‘Orange Emperor’. Although late, the tulips are superb this season and will soon be followed by elegant ‘Ballerina’ and ‘White Triumphator’.
