The lustrous petals are a deep, rich rose at the center, shading to a delicate pale pink at the edge, while doing amazing things in between that include shades of both melon and sunset. Tall, strong, long-lasting and reliable, like most Darwin hybrids. An absolutely first-class Tulip. Among the hundreds of thousands of brilliant Tulips at Keukenhof, the annual bulb display in the Netherlands, Pink Impression is the one that quite literally stops traffic. It seems as though everyone visiting with children has the kids pose next to these enormous flowers-and its the most popular spot for grownups to pose, too. Pink Impression is a long-lasting perennial in the garden. The very name Tulip is magic, for everyone knows this fine genus. We call these gay flowers the lipsticks of the garden because they provide a finishing touch that brings spring borders to life. Plant Tulips in well-drained, good garden soil. Full sun is recommended (at least 6 hours or more). ...

Amazon / Bloomsbury USA: The Tulip The Story of the Flower That Has Made Men Mad (Anna Pavord) The Tulip The Story of the Flower That Has Made Men Mad (Anna Pavord)

The New York Times bestseller and international publishing sensation-now available in paperback. Greed, desire, anguish, and devotion have all played their part in the development of the tulip from a wild flower of the Asian steppes to the worldwide phenomenon it is today. No other flower has ever carried so much cultural baggage: it charts political upheavals, illuminates social behavior, mirrors economic booms and busts, and plots the ebb and flow of religious persecution.Sumptuously illustrated from a wide range of sources, this beautifully produced and irresistible volume has become a bible, a unique source book, a universal gift book, and a joy to all who possess it. Now available in paperback, its as irresistible as its subject.In an auction held in Holland in February 1637, 99 lots of tulip bulbs fetched a staggering 90,000 guilders, more than $3.5 million in todays money. Tulipomania had reached its height, and its story is told in just one of the fascinating sections of Anna Pavords wonderful book on this most seductive of flowers. Pavords passion for the flower is evident from the opening pages of the book, where she tells of scrambling across the hillsides of Crete in search of an obscure, indigenous purple tulip. The story of the discovery of this tulip leads into Pavords extraordinary history of this beautiful, enigmatic flower. As with all the best love stories, Pavords is told from the perspective of the object of affection--in this case, the tulip--from its adoption by the Ottoman sultans of Istanbul in the 18th century to its present cultivation by the Wakefield Tulip Society. Along the way, incredible stories of peoples investments in the flower emerge, the result, as Pavord explains, of a unique feature ...

Amazon / Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: America s Famous and Historic Trees From George Washington s Tulip Poplar to Elvis Presley s Pin Oak (Jeffrey G. Meyer) America s Famous and Historic Trees From George Washington s Tulip Poplar to Elvis Presley s Pin Oak (Jeffrey G. Meyer)

Like many residents of Jacksonville, Florida, the Jeffrey Meyers family liked to picnic under the citys magnificent Treaty Live Oak. When their toddler handed them an acorn from the tree, Meyers, a nurseryman, planted it in their back yard. That acorn was the inspiration for an immensely popular project, Americas Famous & Historic Trees, sponsored by American Forests, the countrys oldest nonprofit conservation organization. Through this program, Meyers and his volunteers have collected seeds from more than a thousand different historic trees, which are grown to sapling size in the projects nursery. The descendants of these famous trees have been planted on the grounds of state capitols, in schoolyards, and in back yards across the country. In this fascinating book, Meyers tells the stories of seventeen historic trees, describes their role in Americas history, and tells how their seeds were collected and their offspring propagated. For readers who want to grow a replica of an importantNurseryman Jeffrey Meyer founded the Famous and Historic Trees Project as a way of preserving and propagating the past. The project began after his son came to him with an acorn fallen from Jacksonville, Floridas Treaty Live Oak--a vast old tree growing in the spot where the Timucuan tribe sat for tribal councils. Meyer took the acorn home and planted it in his backyard. From that little acorn also germinated the idea of growing descendants of important trees, he notes. Americas Famous and Historic Trees tells the stories of various trees that Meyer and his cohorts rescued or propagated: oftentimes, when trees were going to be cut down, he and his workers headed off the bulldozers, rescuing the tree with their massive tree hoe. Other trees--like the Indian Marker Pecan in southeast Dallas--were propagated before they died. Some of the ancestor trees still stand in their historic places--like Elvis Presleys Pin Oaks on the grounds of Graceland. Chapters here follow the trials and tribulations ...
