This Tulip owes her name to her colours: green and yellow are the city colours of ‘that other famous city of the Netherlands’: The Hague. Amsterdam and Rotterdam may be known all over the world, but ever since the United Nations located the International Court of Justice in ‘Het Vredespaleis’ in The Hague this city has also become quite well-known.
The Tulip The Hague really is an exciting Tulip. She is graceful and elegant long before she starts blooming. The beautiful, blue-green plant shows a fascinating happy family of flower buds on top of her stems. For weeks, she has you thinking that she is just about to start blooming, but she really makes you wait for it. It is not until the end of April or sometimes even the beginning of May that she starts her beautiful blooming period. The Hague is a Tulip to enjoy for weeks.
