These tulips are the result of a cross between the Single Early Tulips and some of the later flowering varieties. Triumph Tulips are the largest and most important class of tulips.
They come in every possible shade of colour possible for tulips, including some marvelous pastels. They are particularly prized for their beautiful, traditional "tulip" flower shape.
They have sturdy stems, which allows them to stand up well to bad weather. They make excellent cut flowers, as they have a long vase life. Finally, many consider them to be the absolute best type of tulip for indoor forcing.
