One of the last tulips to show is this lovely slightly scented ‘Bruine Wimpel’ or ‘Malaika’ described as brandy-snap or caramel brown and lilac-pink. Not a brown tulip as such, but like a delicate tea stained silk, the colours are unusual and quite beautiful. And long-lasting too.

I’m ┬ánot sure if mine were true to form as they appeared much more orange than I thought they would be, although in the sunlight it is hard to capture their true colours. ┬áNext to my other orange tulips though they definitely had a brownish hue.
