After hosting the Abbotsford Tulip Festival for four years, Bloom is now blooming in Spallumcheen with a sunflower festival in the summer and a stunning tulip festival in the spring.
Behind the beautiful blooms is Alexis Szarek, a third-generation flower grower who wants to share her family’s love of farming and inspire appreciation for locally grown flowers. If you’re wondering about the tulip varieties you’ll see at the festival, there are over 20 different varieties to feast your senses.
You can find pink tulips such as Light Pink Prince, Barcelona, Carola, and Royal Ten. If you prefer red, there are Crystal Beauty, Miranda, Red Saigon, and Strong Fire. For orange, check out Icoon and Ogene.
If yellow is your favorite color, don’t miss Sunny Prince, Crystal Star, and Yellow Pomponette. Purple tulips include Purple Prince, Candy Prince, Rousillion, and World Bowl, while White Prince is the lone white tulip. And for something a little different, you can also see Gudosnik Double, Happy Generation, Crossfire, and Davenport, which are bi-colored.
