This is a beautiful photo of a new Darwin Hybrid tulip called "American Dream" tulip, featured on the Fall 2007 catalog cover of White Flower Farm.

Where did you find this lovely grouping? Do you have these planted in a garden of your own? This is a new introduction that I haven't seen as yet, but would like very much to plant here in NC.

Were you the photographer for the cover shot for White Flower Farm's catalog, or did the catalog inspire you? The pictures are so similar, at first I thought it was the same photo. You have many lovely flower photos, so I imagine you might be a professional in this field.

I don't know how to get to the "bio" section on this website, so don't know if you are "pro" or "amateur," but thank you for the info and tell us more about the story, and where you found these lovely flowers, and more!

I am a big-time gardener and have 3 acres in flowers right now and want to learn how to take these gorgeous pictures of what I live with every day. Yours, Catherine Todd, ctodd1000@gmail.com #4358005
