Darwin Hybrid Tulip Pink Impression

Pink Impression is quite the wrong name for this tulip. This is no impression; this is a clear statement of pinkness in many guises and the name should really refer to how impressed you will be by it. The foundation colour is a rhubarb fool pink with that same slightly streaky look which transforms to a feathered edge that is the colour of cooked prawns (if you can stomach the culinary metaphors). Often described as Empire pink which means nothing to most people, this tulip really is a stunning, deep, pure colour, never wishy-washy or drab and the petals are set off beautifully by silver-green leaves. Atop a strong, wind-resisting stem Pink Impression is a great choice for a spring garden and it goes well with any number of the other tulips in our range.

Where to Impress

It will naturalise if you can bear to leave the grass uncut until the end of May, and looks magnificent with its huge, ovoid flowers aloft in fresh spring grass. Its delicious colour fizzes against purples, whites, silvers or greens so it adapts to a multitude of garden situations. Try planting it next to silvery Artemisia ludoviciana or mixing it with the slightly shorter classic purple tulip Negrita or the lovely softer purple of Claudia and for the more daring, pair the pink with the exotic frills of blue or black parrot tulips.

You can have no end of fun with this accommodating and special flower. And don't forget that like all Darwin Hybrid tulips, they make excellent cutting flowers because they last, because they are vast - the veritable thugs of the tulip world - and they all glow like jewels in the dark.
