Fancy Frilly Purple Tulip
Fancy tulips of this type are usually classified as "fringed." Even these outstanding blossoms tend to blend in with the huge plantings here along the Wasatch Front. The two most notable areas are located at the Thanksgiving Point Garden in Lehi, Utah and around Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. There are quite a few beautiful gardens on the campus of Brigham Young University also. The plants begin flowering in early April and are mostly finished flowering by the first week of May. This has been an extraordinary year for flowers, or so we have been told.
