It seems simple enough. A double tulip is a tulip with extra petals. OK, but those extra petals completely change the look of one of the world’s most iconic flowers and allow the creation of some intriguing and often eye-popping blends.
Fluffy, ruffled, big, broad, dense, bold, demure. Mix and match those adjectives how you like, but the effect of these flowers in the landscape is always the same: sensational. Maybe the appeal of double tulips really is as simple as this: More petals = more color!
