A delightful and elegant Tulip front he neighbours, the brothers Mark and Ruud Weijers. Mark and Ruud are raised on the flower bulb nursery of their father Jan. They can grow bulbs like nobody else, but besides growing they are also breeding new varieties of Daffodils and Tulips. They really have the ‘fingerspitzengefuhl’ because you see many exciting new Tulips and Daffodils arise in their seedling beds. Dutch Dancer is one of their first Tulip introductions and ‘what a Tulip’! When I made Ruud compliments over this Tulip he offered me a few for the Fluwel web shop. I have enough, he said, because she grows like cabbage followed by the question if I knew a proper name for her… Not easy for such an elegant Tulip. Because of het vivid orange I thought of Holland and the sizable flowers were dancing in the wind, so Dutch Dancer was what I suggested. A grand addition to the garden Tulips. A sound and sturdy late blooming Tulip with an awesome colour.
