January, Terrace, B.C: One tulip broke from a display of forced "Attila" so it became a cut flower, in a purple hyacinth jar with some lunaria seed pod stems, cut from the winter garden outside.

These are as close to black as we have found available, leaning to a deep chocolate burgundy colour. Growing to 22 inches (55 cm) they are inexpensive, force easily, and are also very beautiful outdoors in the garden.
