This tulip is the grand lady of tulips. For some seventy years it has been the best pink lily-flowered tulip around. I doubt if its beauty will ever be surpassed by any other flower - Mariette is simply the one and only true beauty in the garden. Plant the bulbs spaciously throughout your borders, spreading them out in a curved line. It is the finishing touch to your garden. The photograph shows Mariette in De Theetuin of Jacqueline van der Kloet in Weesp.
