"Some say it looks like a rose, many say it closely resembles a peony, but all agree that this flower is as beautiful as can be! Referred to as the ‘new Angelique,’ but overall Finola is a much stronger variety.

Double Tulips
A normal tulip has six petals while a Double tulip has at least twice that amount! These varieties are great for pots and containers as well as the border area of flower beds. Because of their full blooms, these tulips like sunny and pleasant weather or the protection provided by shade and cover – they do not fare as well when exposed to heavy rains or strong wind. Available in a variation of colors and petal shapes, Double tulips can be egg shaped, fringed, or have the appearance of the always popular peony flower. Bloom times will vary from early to late season with a few in the middle as well.

Tulip bulbs should be planted during the fall months so that they can flower in the spring. Bloom dates will mostly depend upon the local climate, but exposure to sun and water will also influence timing. These flowers do not require extensive sunlight and will bloom when planted in fully shaded areas. Tulips will typically produce a single flower per bulb, but some varieties will have multiple blooms. Great as a garden flower or cut and placed in a vase, tulips are known to be a declaration of love!"

Care: 

"Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun through to full shade. Plant to a depth of two and a half times the height of the bulb. In regions warmer than Zone 8, bulbs will need a cold treatment (40° to 45°F for 8 to 10 weeks). Zone 9 is west coast only."
