tulip orb

Mature tulips naturally form a fabulous rounded bouquet.

An incredible sphere-shaped cluster of lovely peony-flowered tulips, hand-tied and accessorized with Camellia foliage, makes a fetching bouquet. And since tulips are available in a multitude of types and hues, many different looks can be created with this simple composition.
The ball-shaped formation is naturally achieved with mature tulips, the stems of which continue to grow and arch gracefully after they are cut. When the curved stems are gathered en masse, the cheery blossoms easily form a rounded creation.

MATERIALS: peony-flowered tulips and Camellia foliage from California cut flower growers; Oasis® Waterproof Tape from Smithers-Oasis.
