Tulipa ‘Monsella’ is classified as a double early tulip or peony tulip, based on appearance and bloom time. Paghat has written a fairly extensive article about Tulipa ‘Monsella’.

    Wow. I love this tulip. I grew it for the first time this spring and the colors were just spectacular. Up close the red lines (not sure of correct botanical name) looked like they had been painted on with a fine paint brush, every stroke was different!

    Are there several blooms on one plant, or are they planted really close together?

    Dori, this tulip can produce more than one stem and flower from each bulb (see the Paghat link). It appears that there are at least two bulbs at the front of the image, there are two unopened buds to the left of the flower in front that are coming from the same bulb and there is another flower almost open to the right that appears to be coming from another close bulb and may have other stems.
