Tulip Leen van der Mark
Named for Jan Ohms' Uncle Leen, a famous Dutch flower bulb hybridizer for Konijnenburg & Mark, the tulip Leen van der Mark, is prized for its large, bold cardinal-red blossoms adorned with a golden band around the edges gradually maturing to sparkling white in mid-late spring.

Tulip Purple Prince
The tulip Purple Prince blooms with a truly classic form. A distinctive variety with its rich, royal purple coloring that looks just as good in the garden as in a bouquet. The scalloped edges of Purple Prince really give this tulip an added dimension. As the flowers open they mature to reveal a dark interior with a golden yellow eye. Purple Prince is a 'single early tulip' - so these tulips bloom early in the season.
