The resulting Single Late Tulips are some of the most popular tulips of all time. They come in the widest range of colours possible for tulips, and they may be the tallest tulips you can get, although the Darwin Hybrids also vie for that honour.
A few varieties have a fragrance; I have indicated which ones by putting an asterisk (*) after the name of the variety.
