May 12, 2010 I used to think I didn't like orange tulips. But a friend gave me tulip bulbs with no idea what color they were. So I planted them and, happily, they are beautiful even though they are orange! They are somewhat multi-colored, and the FIRST major bloom of the season. Now I've planted them everywhere and I love when they come up each year. They are beautiful in a vase on the kitchen table.
