Luit,

Thanks a lot for your wonderful pictures from exibitions. I enjoy them a lot, especially tulips, as they are my passion and have already 250 different tulip varieties in my collection.

I especially now take interest into older varieties, among which are many much better cultivars than those new introductions, which are only better fore forcing, but not for the garden. Unfortunately they aren't offered in trade or very rarely offered. As you live in Holland I would kindly ask you if you can learn if such varieties as 'Indian Chief', 'Tantalus', 'Panorama' and 'Lous XIV' (Single Late division (former Breeder)) are still grown commercially by some nursery in the Netherlands. You can probably ask some spesialists who exibit tulips in the show. These varieties have a special beauty and unusual colour for tulips, but, unfortunately, I don't see them anymore in trade.

Thank you all for your kind comments. I'll have to go on sending pictures of the shows, don't I ?  ;) :)

Zhirair, about your question about the old tulips I can tell you that these varieties are not in commercial production. Since the Darwin Hybrids came, most of these varieties disappeared.

In the Connoisseur Collection there are :
Tantalus, Louis XIV and Panorama.

I'll try to remember when they start to flower and hope to make some pictures.

Luit,

Thanks for the information. What is the Connoisseur Collection and where is it located. I'll be just super if you manage to photograph these cultivars. They are late-blooming with exceptional beauty. I just know that these cultivars are grown in the collection of Hortus Bulborum. I've ordered their book lately, but pity that you can not make a choise regarding the varieties when ordring from them.

I am always surprised why those wonderful cultivars, which are no longer in commercial production. Many of the old tulips are much better than those new cultivars and very good growers in the garden, which can grow without lifting for many years. Knowing well the nature of tulips I can say that new cultivars don't surpass old varieties at all; they are just more suitable for commercial growing (especially for mechanical labour as for potatos), have good forcing qualities and rate of propagation. But from the point of decorativeness the new cultivars are far to surpass the old ones.

During Soviet period, there were many local tulip growers in our country offering over 1000 varieties of different tulips, including many rare ones. Ater the collapse of the country when the Dutch conquered our market with their chiep prices, many of the local growers stopped their business finding it not profitable anymore from the commercial point of vew. And the same situation is in our country now as well. Only around 300 tulips are curcling in the market, the others dissapeared. All companies offer the same range of tulip cultivars, which is very boring and even not interesting to collect, becuse they are widely awalable everywhere.

I hope I will go some day to Lisse flowershow.

Luit,
let me please to correct you -- since I was born in Transylvania -- it must be Hepatica tranSylvaniCa, not transsylvaniva. :)

And thank you for the every week presentation. :)

Luit,
Most interesting selection - as always!
It is the first time a I heared of  Chionoscilla allenii - a natural hybrid between Chionodoxa forbesii x Scilla bifolia (Google). Even beautiful Corydalis hybrids! Thank you!

Luit,

As always, your pics are wonderful! Fringed tulip 'Provence' has very nice and tender colour combination, not mentioning its beautiful flower shape. I always keep an eye on brand new tulip cultivars, but this one is unfamilliar to me.

Sorry Kathrine, it just happens sometimes typing a bit quick and as the v and c are so close
together.....
So next time it will be transsylvanica  as it should be, I hope?  ;D  8)

Zhirair it seems to be a trend, because I see those fringed forms more often the last years.
