Sprengerei Tulips

Nothing cuter than wee Sprengerei Tulips, and each year they bloom around June 1. I can't take any credit for them being in my garden, but I've been enjoying them for sixteen years thanks to the previous homeowner. I must confess that I didn't even know their name until recently when I went to the gardens at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York.

Thanks for stopping by! There's something blooming daily in the garden these days.


  1. Debbie, I'm not familiar with that type of tulips, but they are adorable. What a nice "leftover" from the previous homeowner.

  2. I'm not familiar with these either. They must be long lived and more naturalized than a lot of the tulip bulbs we usually see. What bright little spots of color in the woodland garden setting...LOVE THEM!

  3. They're so pretty! and they look beautiful against the greens! Pretty picture, and pretty neat that you've been enjoying for so long!

  4. I've never seen that type of tulip - it has a gorgeous color!
    How nice you are now able to put a name to it since you have it in your garden!

  5. How cool that they bloom this late. Very pretty! I need to look into them as well. I like to stretch the season.


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
