You’re making a sound bet if you gamble on the award-winning late-flowering double Tulip Monte Carlo. Both the bright yellow double tulip and Monaco’s Monte Carlo Casino have been around for a long time and are still drawing the crowds. While not everyone hits a lucky streak at the tables, those who choose Tulip Monte Carlo will come out winners.
The bloom, with its double layers of pure gold petals, opens into a large flower measuring anything up to 6 inches (15cm) across. Its short but sturdy stem makes it suitable for borders, edging, containers and bouquets of cut flowers.
