Double Early Tulips all have more than the normal six petals. Some have so many petals that they look more like peonies than tulips. They don't come in as wide a selection of colours as some other types of tulips, but on sunny days, when they are completely open, the blossoms can be as wide as 4" (10 cm) across!
The stems are fairly short but very strong and sturdy, and the blooms are very long lasting. These are excellent flowers for containers.
