I was very disappointed in this tulip when I first saw pale lemon coloured blooms. I wondered why I would have bought it and to make it worse, it was blooming with the daffodils, which are a much brighter yellow. Then after a few days I noticed some orangey-coloured tulip blooms and realized that the color was changing with age.
Daydream is a Darwin hybrid. Previously I had not been excited about the hybrid tulips because I thought they were a little boring and because they pretty much die out after one year.
Darwin hybrids are different in that they are supposed to come back year after year and still look great. I sure hope so!!
