Wednesday Lagniappe: Love It or Hate It?
At one point, I started a series of occasional posts called "Love It or Hate It?" but found that I like most any plant I see and that most landscaping practices are fine by me. I recently got a fall bulb catalog (I do get a few gardening catalogs, but not as many as you might imagine) that had this on the back cover: the tulip "Ice Cream." Do you love it or hate it? I formed an opinion right away: I despise it! It looks like a diseased or infected plant, part tulip, part ... well, I will be polite. It also looks like someone stuffed tulips with tissues. I guess I get the idea, like it is a pink bowl full of vanilla ice cream, but...yuck! The white center petals ruins the graceful form of the tulip. Anyone have a different opinion? I will be kind!
