Even though it is an odd bird amongst tulips, this tulip definitely belongs in this time and age where everybody wants to feel ‘green’. Top model Frederique van der Wal baptized the tulip in Keukenhof in honour of ninety years KLM. Of course we were there. Years ago I bought this tulip as a seedling. I fell for it because it was different, and because of its fresh apple green colour and capacity to flower long. It is a great honour that this pretty tulip from our nursery is named after one of the nicest and most famous Dutch companies.
