The special edition Canada 150 Tulips were supposed to be red & white, with ‘red flames’. This is the MOST AWESOME specimen ever! See the maple leaf?
Last year you could order up limited edition, special Canada 150th Anniversary Tulips. They were planted from coast to coast, but when spring came, many came up orange, yellow or a mixture of both.
Now we finally know what happened. It was an accident. A simple mistake happened when some bulbs were accidentally packaged alongside Canada 150 tulip bulbs. Mystery solved!
