They’re such a great colour, only one of mine flowered last year and it’s the same this year. One is better than none I guess 🖤💜

I love mine in my 'goth' border, but either mine are very late, or they're not coming at all this year. #fingerscrossed 🤞

Isn’t it @Katalin big debate on here last year if people liked them or not.. think they are marmite - love or hate - and I love them!

I know some people don't like the dark colors. I'm not a fan of a completely dark flower bed, but I do love how dark flowers pop against bright colors. They just look fabulous! 💕

Couldn’t agree more @Katalin they make a great accent colour, if you had a whole bed you’d lose the effect!

For you @pelly I'm pleased with the Queen of the Night tulips 🌷 especially as I didn't realise they were in the mixed bag until a friend told me yesterday that's what they were! Sorry 😐 @Jasonsparkes1 and @bigemrg couldn't resist posting 😏😏
