16-18” tall, mid-spring. This color-changing variety will provide an enchanting spectrum of rosy hues throughout its lifetime. Hemisphere’s petals begin pure white and develop pale rose pink flecks and stripes, which spread and deepen as the flower matures, until the tulip finally reaches an intense rose pink. Semi-flared blooms stand on a contrasting grey-green stem with broad lance-shaped leaves. One of the ‘Triumph’-type tulips, excellent for perennializing, bedding, cut-flowers, or forcing. Pairs perfectly with the almost-black ‘Paul Scherer’ (see below). Hardy to Zone 2.
