Strong, bright and ever-changing, that sounds like the American Dream - and like the Darwin hybrid tulip that bears its name. The Tulip American Dream’s large blooms do a complete color change as they mature. Opening with pale butter-yellow petals with a small red trim, they develop into a stunning display of sunshine yellow and tomato-skin red that’s likely to be a show-stopper in your garden.

Plant these stunners in big groups if you have the space. Having only one or two to dream on their own would spoil the impact. And you would miss out on realizing a dream of your own: of having one of the most breath-taking spring gardens in your neighbourhood.
