This is a great example of Secondary colors. You have Green, Purple and Orange in the shot, and I think it looks marvelous.
There are only a couple nit picks that I have about this, and they are quite minor.
First. I can see that you have done a rotation correction on this, then cropped. You left a small piece of white in the upper left corner. I noticed this right away, due to the fact that these photos load from top to bottom.
Second, I would like to see this with the tuilps which are poking out from the bottom cropped off. They add nothing to the picture, and I think it would take nothing away from the picture to crop that small portion out. Even if it is cropping a bit of the tulip in the bottom right corner, I think I would still prefer that to seeing those little tops of the intruding tulips.
Focus is great in my opinion. I like the DOF. The background is blurred nicely, and not distracting at all to your main subject.
Lighting conditions appear to be a bit dull, however, with the waxy texture of tulips, had the lighting conditions been really bright and sunny, I fear that these would have suffered from glare. So probably the better choice to go with a little dark, than too bright. I do think though that maybe if you played with saturation levels, it could bring out the colors a bit? Something to try anyway.
It's a really nice shot.

like the setup except top flower being out of focus causes distraction

Orange is a stronger colour than purple so for more impact I would have chosen an orange tulip as the center of attention for this image. IIf only one tulip were in focus (shallower DOF) it would add to the impact of the photo as well.

The image is exposed well but the main subject is too central.
