With foliage edged silvery white which complements petals of phlox pink with a broad flame of moss green, China Town is a Viridiflora Tulip. Originally found in Turkestan, now a region in Central Asia early in the 17th century, Viridiflora Tulips are named as such after the Latin for green (viridi). There large flowers have a flame of green on the outer petals which make them a highly appreciated strain. The China Town tulip will grow to 30cm. It also holds an 'RHS Garden of Merit' award.
