“Diamonds are forever, They are all I need to please me, They can stimulate and tease me” is what Shirley Bassy sings in the title song of one of the many legendary Bond movies.
Diamonds are forever is what I often say when I walk by Rosy Diamond or her darker sister Blue Diamond on our trial field. Because their blossoms last for an incredible long period of time.
I love these two Diamond tulips and not just because they last long. I think it is their simplicity and classic shape of an ordinary double tulip in combination with the colour spectrum shown by the transparent flower petals. During the aging of the flowers there also appears a pretty silvery glare on the flowers, I really enjoy these tulips.
