A truly striking early to midseason tulip producing large carmine-red flowers edged in yellow with a yellow and black base. The interior is vermillion with yellow edges. Each bloom is a miniature masterpiece of confection!
Placed under T. kaufmanniana but it’s clearly closer to T. greigii or maybe a hybrid between the two. Deepest of yellow, satiny flowers, brush-marked in soft terracotta red both inside and out that stretch almost “radar-dish” flat in the sun.
Native of Crete bearing large, broadly cup-shaped flowers of satiny mallow-pink with a large bright yellow base. A striking combination. Glossy green leaves, sometimes tinged with red. Robust and easy in the garden as long as it has a dry summer rest
