This newer Japanese bred hybrid tulip is a sunny yellow, with razor thin red edges on each petal. Stunning from a distance, this is a tulip that looks ever bit as terrific (more, perhaps) up close. Able to stand up to spring weather, consider partnering Akebono with red Parade for your own version of the super popular red and yellow spring combo.
Double tulips produce large flowers with lots of petals; these can sometimes catch and hold spring rain. Consider planting these tulips where wind can't get to the head-heavy flowers.
