Hi, I've planted a number of tulip bulbs this year and some quite unusual ones have come up. Some, which are in a pot against a south facing wall, are over 85cms tall from the soil in the pot.(see photo)
In another pot I have one tulip with 8 petals, 8 stamen and a stigma with 4 lobes (see photo) plus another just opening which has 10 petals, I assume 10 stamens and an attempt at a 5 lobed stigma.
I've not seen tulips either this tall or with so many petals before. I'm wondering if they're quite rare.
Many thanks for any feedback.
