A Two Lips Tulip

Red tulip catching the sun.

If they don’t make a lipstick the color of this tulip, they should, and that’s enough said.

P.S. The common name of the Tulip, which I finally found days after this post, is Red Emperor. Longwood Gardens faked me out by planting a nameplate for Sky Hugh Scarlet in this bed, but I suppose they are supposed to shoot up and blossom later in the season.

Red, red tulip with golden stamen.
There’s something about the spider-like six-stamen center of this tulip that gives me the shivers. But that’s tulip biz.
