Tulip Barcelona has a briliant fuchsia pink colour and almost seems to be made of velvet. This variety is excellent for making striking combinations with black and purple tulips such as Tulip Queen of Night and Tulip Negrita. The strong stem keeps the flower upright, even in bad weather and is also great for cutting. Because of these qualities Tulip Barcelona has received the Award of Garden Merit by the RHS. Registered in 1989.
