What happens when you discover a “sport”, i.e. a genetic hiccup, of Tulip Monte Carlo, the most popular double yellow tulip grown, has randomly popped up in your growing field? You count your lucky stars and propagate the special plant. Monsella is that tulip, a coveted deep yellow beauty with bold scarlet feathering and the constitution of it's parent. This aggressively cheerful, early blooming double tulip is bright, happy, and drumroll . . . . even fragrant.
This double tulip is short and can manage more exposed sites than many; bring on the April rains and breezes!
