One of my newer obsessions is fancy heirloom bulbs from Old House Gardens, which is the only dedicated heirloom bulb supplier in the country! Check out their awesome selection, which is the only place in the country many of these things are available.
One of my long term life goals is to “break” a tulip with the Tulip Breaking Virus, which is what led to the rarity that drove Tulip Mania. People started breeding for those colors around a hundred years ago, and I don’t know that anyone has intentionally broken a tulip and brought it to commercial availability for one hundred years! of course I want to name it Empress Alexis after my beautiful wife 🙂
