Tulip 'Black Hero'
~~ Asiatic lily 'Queen of the Night' | thoroughly spectacular and totally unique, Queen of Night boasts big flowers so dark they appear black in the garden. Large red-orange stamens highlight the ebony blooms nicely. Their sweet fragrance is a lovely accent to their incomparable beauty | Spalding Bulb~~
