Spring in Albany means tulips. In 1948 Mayor Corning named the tulip Albany's official flower and Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands designated Orange Wonder to be the Tulip of Albany. The tulip festival began in 1949. We can no longer obtain Orange Wonder, but here at Ten Broeck Mansion we are substituting the spectacular Orange Tulip Flair. It is a 14-16 inch tulip which withstands early cold and rainy spring weather. We plant it every year to honor the tradition of the orange tulip in Albany.
We are offering Flair to you so that you can have a reminder of Albany history in your garden as well! The cost is $30 for 100 tulips which will fill 25 square feet (a 5x5 foot area). Click the pdf below and send it in with your check by June 30th to order tulips!
