A lovely tulip for the border and extremely long lasting, Carnaval de Nice is a Paeony Flowered Tulip with fully double white flowers with raspberry red flames atop silvery green foilage. Slightly later than the similar looking Early Double Tulips the Paeony Flowered come into bloom at the end of April into May. In contrast to the Early Doubles the Paeonies have larger heads and usually have longer stems, around double the height, ranging from 35cm to 70cm, with Carnaval de Nice coming in around 50cm. These tulips are robust and are suitable for planting in groups in the border and in pots, however they differ from Early Double Tulips as they are not suitable for indoor culture.
