Esperanto Tulip

This tulip was introduced in 1968, but because it is slow to propagate, it is still rare, much like the language of its namesake. But now we're thrilled to offer the Esperanto Tulip exclusively to our preferred customers. A delicate China rose accented by a flamed midrib fading to dark red.
