  1. Are those species tulips? What a beautiful pink! I love the history of the true Lady Jane of England. Hopefully, yours will be queen for longer than 9 days!

      Although it is related to the species, ‘Lady Jane’ is a named hybrid. There is some controversy about whether ‘Lady Jane’ is simply the species. I just know I like them. You can buy these pink and white tulips at several online bulb distributors anymore. Always choose a good reliable company though because the bulbs will be bigger. Oh, and yes, poor Lady Jane.

  2. i love the species tulips. And she’s posing quite well for you in the first image. Thanks, Dee.

      Thanks Patrick. I’m glad you like them.

    Very pretty! I assume this lady is a lily-flowered tulip? I’m so enchanted by those types in my catalogs. Will have to find a spot in my garden (or a container) for some soon.

    1. Dee Nash says:

      VW, she is a species hybrid really. Which I find all rather confusing, but there it is. The tulips closer to the species do better in our hotter climate.

    She’s definitely a pretty ‘Lady’. 🙂

      Thanks Racquel. Can’t wait to see what’s up in your garden too.

    Gotta have that one.

    1. Dee Nash says:

      Greggo, glad I could help tempt you.

  9. Cindy, MCOK says:

    I need Lady Jane in my garden. And her fellow species tulip Cynthia should join her!

    1. Dee Nash says:

      I think I have Cynthia too, but I’m not sure. Will need to research it a bit.

    Beautiful!

      Hey Jo! Your comment ended up in spam. I’m so sorry. Glad I found you.

    We love the dear Lady, as well, Dee, in all sorts of weather. Love that her heart opens for you, and us. 🙂

    1. Dee Nash says:

      She is a lovely plant, and I always think about how we need to open our hearts wide for blessings like just getting to see her.

    These should be sitting in a cut crystal vase while I sip wine and eat a good cheese on crustini.

    1. Dee Nash says:

      Hi Jackie, I agree with you. They would be pretty there wouldn’t they? Plant some and you can do it.
