Large chalices of yellow flowers, spotted red and flamed in rose, adorn these tulips around the middle of spring in the Chicago region. This cultivar is a member of the Darwin hybrid group, which means it has a good chance of returning for multiple years in the garden without replanting. Ideal conditions are full sun, and moist soils in winter and spring that are allowed to dry out in summer. Protect from deer, rabbits, chipmunks, squirrels, and voles whenever possible by interplanting with bulbs from the onion or amaryllis families. These include Allium, Galanthus, and Narcissus.
