Just stunning. Need to order a lot more of these. So glad I was able to figure out what it was since I had completely forgotten what I planted.

This tulip was a show stopper in my front yard this year. They stood up to the wind and passing cars on a busy state highway. They were very eye catching. They made the other tulips fade in comparison.

Really cool little tulips. Multiply nicely. Only drawback is that the deer love them as much as I do. The deer tend to chew them off just after they open. :-(

"If I could, I would have my entire 1/2 acre planted in Monsellas! I am in awe every spring when they bloom. A wonderfully shorter tulip with vibrant red and yellow striped flowers. Sometimes there are up to four blooms on one plant!I have quite a few different varieties of Breck's tulips, but my Monsellas are the best of the bunch!"

I got these as part of a promotion and I am in love. I planted them on the side of my house going up my driveway just in case I didn't like them. Well I love them! I will be ordering lots more to fill in. They smell great and have held up for weeks. I expected tulips to bloom last about a week and that would be it. These are at least 3 weeks old and look exactly like the picture. They were the first ones up this year.

"I'm writing this on Mother's day 2014 and I live on a college campus. I planted about 1,000 Brecks tulips this year and they are all beautiful. But this tulip -- every student who stopped by to pick up a bouquet for mom wanted 2 - 3 Monsella tulips. Just stunning. Planning on adding a hundred or more next year."

It's now Easter weekend and I have just given away the last of the 24 pots of Monsella I forced over winter (8 bulbs in each pot). Outstanding success: up to 4 blooms on each stem and inside the fragrance is just delightful and colors so bright and cheery.

I love these tulips. The blooms have held on for a very long time. Even now as they are just about to drop the petals, they look beautiful. They opened up and just seemed to stay in suspended animation. The huge flowers have looked marvelous day after day and even week after week. I don't think you can go wrong with these.
Unbelievably Stunning!

These tulips are amazing. We have them in our patio border, under some elderberries, and they liven up the space in spring like nothing else. They bloom for a long time and are stunning!

These are the most amazing tulips. They are breathtaking. They hold up very well in inclement weather and draw bees and passing admirers.
