At this time, Viridiflora tulips form the least significant group. Many gardeners looking for unusual plants, however, quickly find what they want in the way of tulips in this group. The tulips in this group are closely related to Single late tulips and have also inherited several of their other characteristics. The flower shape is like that of the Lily-flowered tulips. What makes these tulips so fascinating is that their petal colour includes green. Another of Viridiflora’s assets is that its flowers remain beautiful a long time – a good three weeks. They work well as cut flowers.
