The Tulip 'Paul Scherer', 'Tulipa single late', a fall planted bulb, produces a large black flower on a tall stem that has long been the goal of Tulip hybridizers. Single Late Tulips finish off the tulip season. They bloom in late spring. The blooms are large, oval, almost egg-shaped, on a long, sturdy stem. Single Late Tulips are good as cut flowers, for beds, and borders. They do not require the very cold winters of many other tulips, and are a good choice for warmer climates. They have tall strong stems and well-shaped blooms.
