HAL tulip

The HAL tulip.


  1. I hope you put a picture on the blog when all the tulips are in bloom in Seattle. They look beautiful in the picture.

  2. Is there any chance that us Mariners can get some of the bulbs to plant? Would love of have some in a pot for the house and help celebrate the 140th anniversary. Looking forward to the Vovage of the Vikings this summer. Regards, Eleanor Nelson

  3. Yes,please let us know where we can buy some HAL bulbs. They look wonderful!! It is a grest idea

  4. Thank you for your interest in our new tulip. As this is the first season for the planting, the grower initially had only a small number of bulbs available for our use. Given the seasonality of the tulips and the fact they have just been planted, additional bulbs won’t be available until late summer 2013. As much as we would love our guests to plant the tulips, we currently do not have an inventory or way to distribute them. However, we will most likely sell bulb packages on select itineraries that depart from the Netherlands in fall 2013! Stay tuned.
