Description

The chameleon tulip is aptly named for the color of the petals change dramatically as the flowers develop. Young flowers feature pale yellow petals with a broad white edge that evolve to yellow flowers with raspberry-pink edges, while at maturity, the flowers are deep salmon orange with a golden-yellow base. This cultivar produces multiple flowers per stem and blooms in sequence with the Tall Late class of tulips.

Plant this tulip in full sun and well-drained soil. This cultivar is not known for its ability to become a perennial in Chicago-area gardens. Like all other tulips, it needs to be protected from rabbits, deer, etc.
