One look and our garden pros fell in love with this exquisite new double-flowered tulip. Avant Garde is an amazingly lush variety in a refreshing, clean hue of pale lemon yellow—an unusual shade for tulips. The luxuriant, fully double blooms so closely resemble peonies, at first glance even seasoned garden pros won't be able to tell the difference. Strong stems keep the heavy blooms upright and highly visible in the garden or vase. However, for best results, we suggest planting Avant Garde in an area that affords some protection from unexpected spring storms and high wind. A fantastic choice for cutting gardens or feature beds!
