Nicely shaped like drumsticks used for banging on the big drum. If this tulip owes her name to this instrument I do not know, but it could very well be.
Drumline is a late blooming proud tulip with a crisp and fresh colour. Bright sunlight might burn her white rim slightly, just like almost all tulips with white and yellow edges. But with Drumline the coloured rim remains bright and it does not influence her grace.
A bloke of a tulip for late in the season.
