Violet Outside, Blue Inside

I must confess that I am perplexed by the negative reviews. I LOVE these tulips. Love them. I've seen tulips in all shades of purple, but these truly are closer to blue than any others (since tulips with actual, pure-blue external petals do not exist, except in the land of Photoshop). The external petals of my Bleu Aimables have a fascinating colour that I would describe as a medium violet - not even remotely close to ''burgundy'' (because burgundy tulips do exist, and they look nothing like these). And what's more, the colour does look different in changing light conditions, just as promised. The current Breck's photograph matches their external hue fairly well -- though if anything, they are a shade closer to blue than the picture suggests. But the special treat is that inside, the tulip really is a sky blue, with nary a trace of red. Yes, a genuine, bona fide, true blue. Must be seen to be believed. Out of the 20 that I planted last fall, 19 came up this spring, and they are very nearly as tall (at least in their freshman year) as my second-year Sun Gold Jumbo tulips, to which they offer a perfect colour contrast. Highly recommended.

Stunning, late blooming tulips with a gorgeous blue base that fades to soft lavender. Very tall and elegant. All bulbs bloomed

These all came up but not at all blue. More like burgundy. Not a fan. Like the previous reviewer I thought the wrong bulbs were shipped. Disappointed
