- CommentsVery unique flower shape, not your classic tulip shape. It looks like an ice cream cone and when you see them you would like to take a bite from it. Its shape and coloring is very unique. It seems as if it has a fluffy mound of Vanilla on top ot Strawberry, decorated with a flash of lime. And it is all sitting in a cup with green emerald arms. When it was first introduced it cost a fortune. Luckily it is now available for a more reasonable price. It is one of the most unusual tulip flowers you have seen. Winner of the Trial Garden Award from the Royal Bulb Growers Association in 1999.
