Queen of the Night ~ Day 137

I have a black tulip in my garden. It is called Queen of the Night. It is not actually black but more of a deep dark burgundy color. Still a beautiful bloom. I always love seeing it bloom in my garden. For dark drama in the garden, you can’t beat this almost black tulip, with blooms in shades of deep velvety purple. Tall, strong and reliable, Queen of the Night partners well with light pinks, bold oranges and creamy whites.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. A lot of interesting facts I found about it and I want to share them with you. The black tulip has a curious story. They say it was selected after dark people from the Dutch city of Harlem declared a 10,000 Gulden prize for the one who created a black specimen.
    The Tulip has a special mission – to show the world that black is just as admirable as other colors and to become a symbol of beauty in blacks.And that’s the truth. It has proven over the years that its beauty is “The King of the Night”.
