The hottest new tulip to plant is the uniquely colored Orange Angelique, reports the Vancouver Sun.

Most tulips stand elegantly tall and look best shortly before they open. However, the orange-angelique is loveliest when the flower opens and reveals multi-layers of apricot colored petals. The flower looks similar to a peony and gives off a slight but sweet fragrance.

Angelique tulips grow to about 40 cm high and bear two-to-three blooms on each stem. For best results plant a large amount of bulbs together a month before the ground freezes. The flowers are late-spring bloomers, from April to May. suggests planting the tulips in a bed of forget-me-nots which will bloom at the same time and offer a blue contrast to the orange hues of the angelique.

A bouquet of the orange-angelique flowers would be wonderful spring centerpieces. If you look for meaning in the flowers you place around your home, note that tulips represent elegance and grace and the color orange is said to spread happiness and warmth.

Though garden tulips blossom only a few months a year, they are available for purchase at flower shops year-round.
