Wonderful white pointed flowers with a pretty streak of pink on the reverse. The inner bloom has a deep purple splotch at the base which defines the colour nicely. The flowers open and close with the sun so you get the best of both worlds.
Clusiana tulips are commonly known as Lady Tulips. They hail from Iran along the 40 degree latitude to the Western end of the Himalayas.
Species Tulips have a more relaxed or whimsical feel than the common hybridized varieties. Species Tulips are ideal for rock gardens, lawn plantings, pots or towards the front of a border.
If planted in a well drained soil in a spot that does not get too hot over summer then the bulbs can be left in the ground for many years where they will multiply at a moderate rate.
