At first sight Backpacker is a common purple Tulip that does not draw too much attention. But now I know her for a couple of years, and I start to fall in love with her. When I see Backpacker, she always looks tidy, performs well and is good looking. Every time I walk up to her to admire het her and take pictures. She blooms somewhat later in the season; Backpacker is in full bloom when the cherries and the apple trees are starting to show their blossom.
