This beauty has soft, caramel yellow to apricot and bronze petals. The short stems stand proud over the slender glaucus leaves. The flowers have good substance and will stand up to the weather.
Tulip ‘Bright Gem’ naturalises well and multiplies at a steady pace. It holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit so you know it has been put through its paces.
Tulipa batalinii is very similar to T. linifolia. Yellow tulips are singled out in the Batalinii Group.
Species Tulips have a more relaxed or whimsical feel than the common hybridized varieties. and 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 or wet over summer then the bulbs can be left in the ground for many years where they will gradually multiply. Hailing from Uzbekistan they love cold winters and hot, dry summers and don’t mind poor soils.
