Varieties of Tulip Shape

I thought tulips came in one shape.  I was wrong.  Walking around the gardens at RoozenGaarde in Mt Vernon, I got to see so many varieties of tulip and I was amazed at the different shapes and sizes.  Color varieties was something I expected but I didn’t realize just how large some blooms were and I was even more surprised at some plants that, had I not been told that they were tulips, I would never have known.  Fringing of the petals, curvatures that were totally different to the norm and all sorts of variations in between were eye opening.  I guess tulips are a complex subject!
