Description

In late spring, let Tulip 'Ice Cream' help you welcome the onset of summer in your garden. As you look at the long-lasting blooms with their perfect ice cream cone buds you may be tempted, for a moment, to lick the soft, fluffy ice-cream centers. Instead, leave the blooms till they fully open. That’s when the tulip’s ice-cream centre seemingly melts into a peony-style white flower which spills onto a tray of stretched outer petals. The petals of the cone are a charming blend of green flowing through yellow to candy pink. Tulip 'Ice Cream' is a gloriously fun and cheeky flower for your late-spring garden!
