Description

Definitely a hero, Tulip 'Black Hero', overcame being a mere sport or whim of the well-known single Tulip 'Queen of the Night', to triumph in his own right as a stunning dark bloom. Double layers of petals range from a dark maroon through mahogany to midnight black, providing a strong contrast to other less showy and lighter tulips in your late spring garden. To top off its dramatic spectacle, Tulip 'Black Hero' also exudes a fragrance to increase the exotic nature of your garden display.

A relatively tall tulip for a double late, the Tulip 'Black Hero' produces long lasting and striking cut flowers. On the mixed images, you can see the following perfect partners for Tulip 'Black Hero':
