The earliest of the taller tulips to bloom, Single Early Tulips boast of sturdy stems that withstand the early spring winds and rain. The blooms come in a wide variety of nearly every color, including a range of pastels. Due to the early bloomtimes, the Single Earlies are a great selection for chilling and forcing into bloom since they do not require quite as long of a cold period.

I find the Red Revival Single Early Tulip to be one of the most striking, with is bold red-orange petals, each adorned with vibrant yellow at the base. Almost giving the appearance of a burning flame, these blooms look great when paired with other reds or yellows in the early spring garden.
