Tulip Blushing Beauty

A cherished sport of Temple of Beauty, Blushing Beauty is aureolin-yellow, blushing rosy-red toward its petals' edges with interior, pink-rimmed, canary-yellow bases. Known as a Lefeber varieties, Temple of Beauty sports are all tall, late flowering and have an elegant, long, lily-shaped flower with gracefully reflexed petal tips. The five other Lefeber varieties that we carry are Big Brother, Blushing Lady, El Niño, Hocus Pocus and Temple of Beauty. Since they look so very much like each other, you may wonder, why are we carrying both Blushing Beauty and Blushing Lady? First, we love them both, and there is a small difference between the two. Blushing Beauty tends to have deeper yellow and deeper raspberry coloration from bud stage until its flower dies away, while Blushing Lady becomes more pale in coloration as it matures.
