I went through a little phase where I was just plain crazy about black plants...or almost black plants. These tulips are a really dark purple and I'm still just as crazy about them as I was all those years ago when I first discovered them. There aren't too many of them left in my garden, but the ones that have survived are still incredibly lovely. I think I need to buy some more of these little dears this fall so I can have a few more to gaze at.
