This tulip was found in one of the breathtakingly beautiful bulb fiels in Heemskerk, under the smoke of Hoogovens. Leo Aardenburg, a passionate bulb grower, discovered it in his batch of Oxford tulips. He took a lot of pride into growing a handful of them and after he died, his son named the tulip after his father. The name ‘Leo’ turned out to fit the tulip perfectly. Leo is Latin for ‘lion’. And indeed the tulip seems to eat you alive...
