Tulipa White Mountain

White Mountain Tulip Designs

White Mountain tulips are like roses, with crinkled petals in layers like roses.  They stay open for a long time, with strong, almost waxy petals.  As weeks pass, the petals open wider and looser, revealing a yellow centre and green stamen. The last phase is that petals do not close up at the end of the day, gradually dropping off. In early spring they are a very bright sight while no other summer flowers.  Interesting outline shapes appear when tulip is wide open and losing petals; seen clearly against darker backgrounds.

My painting on wood is an experimental prototype with engraved flower of life design overlaid, painted in gold. Drawn from a photo of the same tulip.
